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.
