Police arrested two men accused of breaking into a car parked outside the Hanover Township municipal building and dumping feces inside the vehicle.
The suspects are a 52-year-old man from East Hanover NJ and a 67-year-old man from Toms River NJ. According to Hanover law enforcement officials, the suspects burglarized a motor vehicle that was parked outside the township municipal building.
Beyond merely breaking into the car, the suspects allegedly went much further and dumped a bucket of feces onto one of the car seats. The suspects reportedly smashed a vehicle window and then committed the disturbing act.
The Hanover Township Police Department received a report of suspicious activity outside the local township municipal building, which is located along Route 10 in Hanover, New Jersey. When Hanover police officers got to the scene, they spoke to the victim and learned that he may have been targeted by the suspects.
The suspects face a number of criminal charges, including charges for burglary, harassment, criminal mischief, and conspiracy. The harassment charges were filed against the suspects because they allegedly committed the property destruction “with the purpose to harass, alarm, or annoy the victim.”
After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspects were moved to the Morris County Jail in Morristown, New Jersey. They will both have to make appearances in Morris County Superior Court, also located in Morristown, at a later date.
