RARITAN TWP., NJ – Police here continue to urge caution and are reminding drivers to lock their cars and keep valuables out of plain view as they investigate a string of recent burglaries of homes and vehicles.

The residential burglaries were previously reported. Both were on Old York Road; one was on Aug. 12 and the other on Aug. 16. Four other Old York homes were also burglarized – they were just over the township line in East Amwell.

The motor vehicle burglaries were spread around the township. They happened on Aug. 16 at Home Depot; Sept. 15 at Panatieri’s Pizza, which is in the 7-11 strip mall off Route 202; Sept. 19 on Worthington Terrace; and Sept. 21 on Grandin Drive.

On Sept. 18, there were four burglaries of motor vehicles, with one at Home Depot, one on Manchester Road, one at LongHorn Steakhouse on Route 31 and another at Dockside Market & Grill on Route 31.

Lt. Kevin Donovan said some of the burglaries were of homes and vehicles that were not locked. He urges residents to keep their homes and vehicles locked and secured.

Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III previously reported that in the residential burglaries, suspects may ring the doorbell before breaking in. He cautioned residents to be “extra vigilant when their doorbell rings” and suggested being prepared to call to 911 before answering the door.

“It just may give patrol units those few extra moments of response time needed to intercept these suspects,” he said.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to call Raritan Township police at 908-782-8889 or Kearns’ Major Crimes Unit at 908-788-1129.
