Police in Wyckoff NJ are searching for suspects who may have committed a string of recent car burglaries.
According to Bergen County officials, at least two suspects likely committed the car break-ins. The suspects are said to have unlawfully entered several unlocked cars that were parked on James Way and Russell Avenue in Wyckoff, New Jersey.
The Wyckoff Police Department got several complaints from vehicle owners who told law enforcement that their cars had been broken into and that possessions had been stolen from the motor vehicles. The victims told Wyckoff NJ police that the suspects got away wallets, money, credit cards, cell phones, GPS units, and other items.
Wyckoff New Jersey cops investigated the thefts and were not able to find any signs of forced entry. This led investigators to conclude that the vehicles were unlocked after being parked on the street.
At this time, police have not identified any suspects in the car burglaries and thefts. If authorities can eventually figure out who broke into the motor vehicles, the culprits would probably be charged with multiple criminal offenses, including burglary and theft of movable property.
Meanwhile, the Wyckoff Police Department has asked local residents to take precautions when parking their cars on the street or in their driveways, including locking the vehicles and removing emergency key fobs.
