Six Burglaries Reported Within One Week in Livingston


LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston police have now confirmed a total of six house burglaries in the last week, with jewelry and other items taken from four.  

On Friday, March 24, police received a call at approximately 9:30 p.m. about a burglary to a residence on E. Sherbrooke Parkway. According to police, it appeared that entry had been made through the kitchen window. During the time the homeowners were away from the home—between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m.—jewelry and money were taken from the house.

On Sunday, March 26, police received a call at approximately 4 p.m. about a burglary at Montgomery Road. Once again, it appeared as though entry had been gained through a kitchen window, police said. The master bedroom had been rummaged through and jewelry and money were removed from the home sometime between noon and 4 p.m.

On Monday, March 27, police received a call at approximately 9:30 a.m. about a burglary at Herbert Terrace with entry gained through the rear bathroom window sometime between noon on Friday and 9 a.m. on Monday. According to police, the house was vacant and no items appeared to have been taken, as the homeowners had recently moved out. There was no damage to the inside of the house.

Later the same day, police received a call at approximately 3 p.m. about a burglary at a residence on W. Northfield Road with entry gained through the rear door. It is unknown at this time whether any items were taken. Police believe this occurred in the short time between 2:30 p.m. and 2:50 p.m. on Monday.

A week earlier, on March 20, police received two calls at approximately 9:30 a.m. about burglaries at East Drive and Hillside Avenue near Wingate Drive. In both of these incidents, entry was gained through the front doors, which police believe were locked at the time. Jewelry and other items were removed from both locations.

Since no glass was broken on the windows mentioned above, police said it is possible that the actor(s) found that the type of windows installed at these houses were easier to pry open and push in rather than breaking glass.

These incidents are under investigation and more information will be provided as it becomes available. 

The Livingston Police Department encourages anyone living in those areas that has surveillance cameras to review the footage from those days and see if anything stands out or seems suspicious. 

Anyone with information is urged to call the Livingston Police Detective Bureau at (973) 992-3000 ext. 3500.
