Electronics, Jewelry Stolen in James Street Area Burglaries

Police remind residents of crime prevention strategies after two homes broken into on Sunday.

Morristown Police are looking for help in their investigation of a pair of residential burglaries that occurred in the James Street area of town, Lt. Stuart Greer said. 

According to Greer, a resident on Headley Road reported that sometime on Sunday afternoon his home was broken into and several items including jewelry and electronics were taken. Greer said it appeared entry was gained by breaking a window at the rear of the property.

A second burglary was reported by a resident on James Street who told police his home was entered and several electronic items and pieces of jewelry were stolen on Sunday afternoon, Greer said.

"The exact method of entry into this home is still undetermined and under investigation," Greer said. 

According to Greer, both burglaries occurred within a short distance of each other and took place in the early afternoon hours of Sunday.

"Police officers and detectives responded to the area to speak with neighbors and to process each home for any evidence which could assist in this investigation," Greer said. "We would ask that all residents remain vigilant for anything suspicious or unusual within their neighborhoods."

Greer also reminded residents should practice basic crime control strategies such as ensuring doors and windows are locked and exterior lights are operational and should interact with neighbors to ensure that information is shared. 

The investigation into this matter is ongoing and anyone with information is requested to contact  Det. Brendan Briscoe at 973-292-6646 or Detective Kevin Beal at 973-292-6699.

In addition, tips may be submitted electronically and anonymously through the Morris County Crime Stoppers Tip Line. A link can be found on the Morristown webpage at www.TownofMorristown.org

Sounds similar to the burglaries that have been taking place in Madison & Chatham -- same person(s)?
