Police in Boonton Township NJ are looking into a car burglary incident at a park in Morris County, New Jersey.
According to law enforcement, the vehicle break-in was committed between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on July 15. The victim had parked his motor vehicle at Tourne County Park, which is located in Boonton Township, New Jersey. While the victim was walking around the park, the suspects allegedly broke into his car and stole his wallet. The victim later told authorities that his wallet contained $60 in cash and two credit cards.
It is believed that the suspects forced their way into the car, which was locked at the time of the vehicle break-in.
Morris County Park police and Boonton Township police conducted an investigation and tracked the stolen credit cards. Later that same day, two suspects allegedly tried to use the stolen credit cards to make purchases at two retail stores, including Macy’s and the Gap inside the Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, NJ. The following day, the suspects reportedly used the stolen credit cards to buy items from Macy’s in the Garden State Plaza, which is located in Paramus, NJ.
Law enforcement was able to obtain security camera footage showing the two suspects, who are described as a man and a woman in their 30s, as they pushed a baby stroller inside the malls.
If police can identity and apprehend the suspects, it is likely that criminal charges for burglary, theft of movable property, and credit card theft would follow.
Boonton Township police are asking members of the public to assist with the investigation. Anyone with information about the suspects or the theft incident should call the CrimeStoppers tip line at 973-267-2255.
