West Orange Police Respond to Burglary and Theft Reports

WEST ORANGE, NJ — Three incidents of burglary and theft were reported to West Orange police during the first week of June at a residence on Lincoln Avenue, North Edgewood Avenue and The Manor.

1. A burglary at a residence on Lincoln Avenue was reported on June 4, according to police. The husband stated that he noticed two days earlier that a few drawers had been pulled out on the small dresser in the master bedroom. According to police, the man said that at the time, he did not think much of it.

This changed when his wife went into her jewelry box and noticed all her jewelry missing. This included a diamond engagement ring worth $800, a Movado watch worth $500, a pair of diamond earrings worth $500, bracelets worth a total $2000 and a pair of gold earrings worth $1000.

The husband checked the residence prior to the arrival of the police, and noticed a partially pushed-in screen to a window at the rear of the house, police said. The actors apparently entered the residence through this unlocked interior window, according to police. The suspect(s) remain unknown.  

2. Also on June 4, a woman came into police headquarters to report a theft that she stated took place during an event she attended that day at The Manor. She said her black leather Rebecca Minkoff bag was stolen—most likely when she went out to the valet to retrieve her vehicle.

According to police reports, it was at that time she realized that her bag was not in her possession. She went back into The Manor to retrieve her bag, but was unable to locate it.

When she asked to speak with management, the employees stated that the manager for that specific room was not there at that time. She called The Manor the following day and was told that no one had turned in the bag, which contained a pair of Beats by Dre headphones, an iPhone charger, a Beats by Dre headphones charger and a cordless iPhone charger.

3. Two police officers responded on June 7 to a report of burglary at a residence on North Edgewood Avenue. Upon arrival, police said the reporting person claimed someone had entered her residence and removed her purse that was on the kitchen counter.

Inside the purse was $250, a Samsung Galaxy cell phone, a black Coach wallet containing numerous credit cards, as well as her driver’s license, Social Security card and a blank check, according to her report. The woman was advised by police to cancel all credit and debit cards, and to contact Chase Bank regarding the blank check.

The investigation revealed that an unknown suspect(s) entered the residence through either an unlocked front or rear door, as both doors were discovered to be ajar by the couple that owns the house. The unknown suspect(s) remain at large.
