A pair of men from Staten Island, NY have been arrested in connection with at least eleven motor vehicle burglaries in the Durham Avenue area of South Plainfield during the morning of August 26th, 2020.
The burglaries were reported to the police after residents woke up to find that their unlocked vehicles had been rummaged through and ransacked. Most of the reported vehicle burglaries occurred on the side streets in the vicinity of Durham Avenue and Route 287.
