Police are investigating multiple burglaries that occurred on Wednesday.
"It appears that they are connected," Officer Earl Kinsey, a spokesman for the police department, said.
When Officer Paul Levi arrived to a
Littleton Road home around 3:30 p.m., he spoke to the homeowner who said he went to the store and when he returned found the front door forced open and the master bedroom ransacked, according to police.
Jewelry and personal documents were reported stolen. The total value of the items taken was not immediately known.
Detective Edward Conklin of the Parsippany Police Department’s Investigative Division arrived to continue the investigation.
Later that day, Officer Peter Kolln went to a Philip Drive home at 6 p.m. for activated burglar alarm. When he arrived, he saw the front door had been forced open and the dead bolt lock was broken, police said.
Officers Kolln and David Roman checked inside, but found no one and the burglary is believed to have happened between 3 and 6 p.m. During their initial investigation, nothing was reported missing, according to police.
A few hours later, Officer Kolln went
to an Alan Drive home at 8:20 p.m. to investigate a burglary that happened
between 4 and 8 p.m. The resident got home and found the back door had been forced
open and the bedrooms were ransacked, police said.
During the initial investigation, nothing was reported missing.
The Morris County Sheriff’s Department’s Criminal Investigative Division processed the scene for evidence at all three homes.
