DENVILLE, NJ - A local man who broke into a township residence last week and walked off with more than $200 was caught on camera and subsequently arrested, said police.
The man, Patrick Lake, 31, faces charges of burglary, theft and criminal mischief due to the Jan. 6 incident, police said. They said he kicked in the front door of a house on Rock Ridge Road on Jan. 6 and stole about $220 in cash and loose change.
Lake "was captured via doorbell" as he left the burglarized house, said police. They said he was later found at a house in Jefferson, charged with the crimes and placed in the Morris County jail.
Police also announced the arrest of a Boonton man who, while "highly intoxicated" on Dec. 14, 2017, became engaged in a case of "road rage" fisticuffs.
They said the man, Roger Attieh, 36, was driving in the area of Broadway and Second Avenue when he cut-off another vehicle on Broadway. "While on Broadway, Attieh exited his vehicle and engaged in a physical altercation with the driver of the other vehicle," police said. "It was determined that Roger Attieh was highly intoxicated."
Attieh was charged with driving while intoxicated, refusal to take a breath test and reckless driving, police said.
