Police recently arrested a fifth person who was allegedly part of a crew that committed a burglary spree in Englewood, NJ.
The five suspects allegedly carried out the burglaries at residences located on Route 17 in Englewood, New Jersey.
According to law enforcement, the suspects got away with large sums of cash and expensive personal possessions in the burglaries. In fact, one of the burglaries reportedly involved the theft of jewelry and antique items valued at more than $750,000.
Detectives from several law enforcement agencies worked together on the investigation into the burglaries and thefts, including the Englewood Police Department, the Paramus Police Department, the Tenafly Police Department, the Saddle River Police Department, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Law enforcement was able to locate and capture four of the burglary suspects with relative ease, but the fifth suspect in the burglary spree remained at large. Now he is police custody after authorities tracked him down at a residence in Englewood, New Jersey.
All of the suspects hail from Bergen County municipalities, including Englewood, Hackensack, and South Hackensack. They have been charged with several counts of burglary and theft of movable property.
