Three Home Burglaries on Same Day Likely Related, Police Say

Incidents occurred on Littleton Road, Philip Drive and Alan Drive during the late afternoon hours on Wednesday

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.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents should contact the Parsippany Police Department at 973-263-4300 or email Crime_Tips@parpolice.com.

I hope this scumbag(s) walks into a home where someone is home and the owner has a 12 gauge ready to greet them.......

NJ is a model state on gun laws. If only they could be enforced everywhere. Perfect example of why even folks in P Town should have home protection beyond a pitbull and garden tools... Get a safe, take a class at RTSP, respect it and it will respect you. And pray you don't need to use it.

@VTXRover - NJ certainly is NOT a model state with their arbitrary magazine limits, nonsensical "assault rifle" ban, and 6-12 month wait to get a FID card in most cities. Not to mention its impossible to obtain a carry permit. It's actually a terrible place for gun owners and great for criminals. The laws need to be changed. If you want a model of a state with good laws that actually help law abiding citizens, try Florida.
