On 1/23/17 at 5:17 p.m., patrol responded to a reported burglary at a Holy Glen Lane residence.  The victim reports that the residence was unoccupied from 9 a.m. to approximately 5 p.m.  Patrol observed forced entry to the front door, a damaged window on the side of the home and the bedrooms were ransacked. 

On 1/25/17 at 12:54 pm, patrol responded to a reported burglary to a Killarney Dr. residence.  Patrol observed forced entry to the front door and an open door at the rear of the residence.  There is no time frame for this burglary.

The Berkeley Heights Police Department Investigations Division is currently investigating these burglaries and are requesting that anyone with information to call them at 908-464-1111.  We are also requesting the public’s assistance with reporting any suspicious vehicles or persons in the area.  Additionally, a tactic used by some burglars to see if anyone is home at a residence is to ring the doorbell or knock on the front door to see if anyone is home.  If someone answers, they offer a very vague reason for doing so; is so and so home, my car ran out of gas and I need to use your phone, or offering some sort of service.  If this occurs, please contact the police department and provide as much information on the person and/or vehicle as possible.

Editor's Note: This article relies on information provided by law enforcement officials and the subjects are presumed innocent. If notified of changes to the charges or their outcome, TAPinto.net will update this report.
