Chatham Township Police Investigating "Burglary in Progress"

CHATHAM, NJ - On June 14 at approximately 3 a.m., Chatham Township Police Officers responded to a residence on Shunpike Road near Lafayette Avenue for a report of a burglary in progress.

The homeowner reported that he was asleep in an upstairs bedroom when his dog began to bark. He then heard noise coming from the downstairs and went to check. As he did so, the suspect apparently fled from the residence through a back door on the first floor. At no time was there any interaction between the suspect and homeowner. It was determined that forced entry to the residence had been made through a locked basement window.

At this time it does not appear that the suspect was in the home long enough to commit a theft as nothing had been reported stolen. An extensive search of the area was conducted by Chatham Township Officers with the assistance of surrounding police agencies and Morris County Sherriff’s Department K-9 Units.

This crime is currently under investigation by the Detective Bureau and will remain a priority case. Anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in this area during this time frame is requested to contact the Chatham Township Police Department Detective Bureau at 973-377-0100.
