ROSELLE PARK, NJ - Roselle Park Police are conducting an investigation on a report of a distraction burglary that occurred on January 8, around 12:30 p.m.  

Police say an elderly man was targeted, when a light-skinned male, average build, approximately 5’9, wearing a knit cap produced a plumber’s badge and requested entry into the man’s residence to check under the sink for leaks.  

Police say, once inside, the individual remained with the resident while checking under the sink, and during that time, he was communicating with another person via a two-way radio. After the brief interaction with the resident, the suspect left the residence claiming everything looked good with the plumbing.

Police say, later that day the homeowner realized that personal belongings were missing from the home and realized he was burglarized during the previous incident.

Detectives say the suspect arrived in a newer model, white, Ford F150 crew cab, with dark tinted windows, running boards, chrome wheels, black cover over the bed of the truck and red 4x4 written on the side of it. Two other males wearing dark clothing exited the same vehicle, entered the home at the same time of the incident and removed the resident’s belongings, placed them in the rear of the pickup and all fled onto Galloping Hill Rd. 

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact the Roselle Park Police Department at 908-245-2300.
