BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - On 11/13/2017 the Berkeley Heights Police Department responded to ten motor vehicle burglaries that occurred during the overnight hours. The streets where these crimes were reported are Robbins Ave, Baker Ave, Briarwood Dr, Hastings Rd, and Lawrence Dr.

In each one of the reported burglaries the vehicle was left unlocked and personal property was removed. The Berkeley Heights Police Department Investigation Bureau is currently investigating these crimes. Anyone with information, or having video of any of these areas during the overnight hours are asked to contact the Investigations Division at 908-464-1111.

It is important to remind all residents of the importance of locking your vehicles when unattended, even when in your own driveway. Burglars will usually bypass vehicles that are locked as they do not want to attract attention. We also recommend that personal property be removed, or at a minimum, left where it is not readily seen from the outside.
