Bedrooms Ransacked, iPad and Jewelry Stolen in Home Burglaries, Cops Say

Two Parsippany residences are broken into four days apart in broad daylight, police report.

Two burglaries to Parsippany homes in the past week are being investigated by police, one of which resulted in the theft of an iPad and jewelry, authorities said.

On Thursday, May 1, police received a call regarding a burglary to a North Beverwyck Road home at 12:53 p.m. The resident came home to find the window in the downstairs bathroom had been pried open by a hand tool, police said, and bedrooms had been ransacked.

The burglary occurred between 11 a.m. and 12:50 p.m., police said. An investigation led to witness reports of seeing two-door grey Pontiac sedan in the area in close proximity to the home during the time of the burglary, police said. It was undetermined if the Pontiac was a Grand Am or Grand Prix model.

Witness believed the vehicle was occupied by two Hispanic men, police said, one of which was approximately 5’7” and in his 30s with an average build and short brown hair. He was also described as wearing a red t-shirt and jeans, police said. The other man also had an average build and height as well as a mustache, police said.

Four days later, on Monday, May 5, police responded to a Tarn Drive home to investigate another burglary. When the residents came home, they found the front and back doors were open and the bedrooms of the home had been ransacked, police said. An investigation showed entry into the home was likely made through a front window that was forced open.

An Apple iPad and a box of jewelry were reported missing, and the burglary happened between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., police said.

Anyone with information regarding either of the incidents is urged to email crime_tips@parpolice.com or by calling Det. Joseph Puso at 973-263-4315.

I hope these scumbags soon find a home where the owner is at home and he isn't shy about exercising his 2nd amendment rights.....

All the more reason to encourage the second amendment instead of disparaging it. There's a book out there called More Guns, Less Crime. Guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens make for a safer society. On the other hand those large cities with the strictest gun control laws have the most out-of-control crime.

New Jersey has strict gun laws, higher density population and 290.2 violent crimes per 100,000 people. Nevada has relatively loose gun laws, lower density population and 607.2 violent crimes per 100,000 people. Texas has 408.6 violent crimes per 100,000 people.
