HOBOKEN, NJ - A 42-year-old Jersey City man has been charged in connection with a string of burglaries across Hoboken.
According to Hoboken police officials, Detective Sergeant William Collins was alerted that Juan Jimenez, who was wanted locally for incidents stretching from June 6 until June 24, had been arrested by Jersey City Police Department.
According to a statement, Jimenez’s Hoboken burglary spree began on June 6 when, at 4:44 a.m. he allegedly entered a building at 1st and Jackson Streets, opened several packages, removed the contents and left.
Just three days later a resident in the area of Paterson Plank Road and Monroe Street reported finding several packages open in the lobby area of the home. An investigation by Officer Connor Milne revealed that Jimenez had allegedly entered the building the night before using a tool to pry his way into the lobby area and proceeded to open packages and remove the contents. Jimenez is said to have then entered the garage and attempted to break the lock off of a bicycle, leaving unsuccessful.
Jimenez is said to have committed similar acts by entering the same building at approximately 4:49 a.m. on June 16 and 1:00 a.m. on June 19, removing a bicycle on both occasions. Bringing additional charges were alleged burglaries committed by Jimenez on June 17 in which he is said to have removed packages belonging to four individuals from a building on 8th and Grand Street, two bicycles from a building on 7th and Grand Street on June 23, and packages, as well as a bicycle from a building at 13th and Grand Street on June 24.
Jimenez was processed on all above listed charges and was transported to the Hudson County Jail.
