Police recently arrested a Lyndhurst NJ man accused of burglarizing a Manchester NJ home.
The break-in attempt occurred at approximately 5:00 a.m. at a residence on Molly Pitcher Boulevard. The burglarized house is part of the Crestwood Village 4 section of Manchester, New Jersey.
According to law enforcement officials, two men attempted to gain entry into the Manchester NJ home by removing exterior window screens. The men then allegedly broke a window by hurling a large rock. Someone inside the residence heard the window breaking and dialed 911 to notify police.
A Manchester NJ police officer went to the area and spoke with the victim and a couple of witnesses. Investigators later interviewed other people and eventually identified the two burglary suspects.
Manchester cops were able to locate and arrest one of the suspects: a 19-year-old Lyndhurst NJ man. He was subsequently charged with one count of criminal attempt-burglary.
The other suspect in the burglary will probably faces charges for criminal attempt-burglary and criminal mischief, assuming that law enforcement can locate and arrest him. He has been identified as a 23-year-old man from Beachwood in Ocean County, NJ.
While police search for the Beachwood suspect, the Lyndhurst NJ suspect is being held at the Ocean County Jail in lieu of a $2,500 bail amount.
