Continuing the unfortunate regional trend, Millburn Township residents were victims of numerous vehicle burglaries and four stolen vehicles during the early morning hours of August 1st.
Actors entered vehicles parked, and mostly unlocked, on Kenilworth Drive, Gap View Road, Canoe Brook Road, Athens Road, Delwick Lane, and Millburn Avenue. Two vehicles were stolen on Athens Road, one on Gap View Road, and one on Millburn Avenue.
On Athens Road the perpetrators entered the resident’s garage and rammed one of the vehicles through a closed garage door. In this incident a stolen vehicle, from another jurisdiction was left in front of the house. This vehicle was impounded by the Millburn Police Department detectives in an attempt to find evidence on who the identity of these perpetrators might be.
The Millburn Police Department continues to investigate and make these incidents one of our most important priorities, but we continue to need the residents help.
Acting Chief of Police Gregory Weber stated, “The Millburn Police Department is committed to do everything in our power to safeguard the residents and visitors of Millburn, but we are asking for help.”
Weber continued, “Please lock all parked vehicles, remove all keys, including the valet keys. If you must leave valuables in your car, they should be secured in the trunk or out of view. Almost all these incidents have been unlocked vehicles and the stolen vehicles have had their keys left exposed. Any and all suspicious persons or activities should be immediately reported to the Millburn Police Department.”
