Police: Money, Jewelry Taken from Homes Off of Alps Road

Burglaries occurred on New Street and Bolton Road last week.

Cash and jewelry were taken from homes on New Street and Bolton Road last week, Wayne Police said.

Two of the burglaries occurred on Jan. 5, between 6:30 and 9 p.m., Detective Capt. James Clarke said.

Police reported that footprints found at both homes were similar, but were made by two different types of shoes: one being a sneaker, the other a work boot.

One of the homes was broken into sometime between Jan. 3 and 6 when the occupants of the home were away, Clarke said.

In addition to the cash and jewelry, a large tan combination safe was taken from one of the homes, police reported. Entry into the homes was made through exterior patio and sliding French doors, Clarke said.

Bolton Road and New Street are located in the same neighborhood off of Alps Road.

Police suggested that residents should bring in newspapers, mail, and garbage cans from the street and leave interior and exterior lights on during times of darkness to make homes appear occupied.

Clarke said police are “actively following up on these burglaries.”

“Anyone who sees anything out of the ordinary, whether it be a suspicious vehicle or anything else, should contact the police,” Clarke said. “If you see a suspicious vehicle, write down any important information, get a license plate number, and let us know.”

Anyone with information about these incidents should contact the Wayne Police Department Detective Bureau at 973-633-3530.

Why did this take so long to hit the news? Still trying to keep Wayne Pristine?

@Justice Are you for real? First of all, it is not that long of a lapse. Second of all, Wayne Patch is not the newspaper of record for Wayne or anywhere else, for that matter. Finally, to whom are you directing your questions? Dan Hubbard? The Wayne Police? If the latter, do you understand what news is and how it flows? If the story originated with Wayne PD it's primary purpose was not to inform the public about these two specific burglaries, it was to raise awareness and have the citizenry take precautions. If the story originated with an inquiry from Mr. Hubbard, then if he had asked sooner he could have run the story sooner.

@Michael, Prior to alluding to accusations of lack of reality, I highly and strongly advise that first you look at yourself in the mirror. After all, it did take you 6 days and almost 14 hours to critique my post. Secondly, I suggest that you contact Mr. Hubbard directly and ask him how long it took to receive the information required to post the story. Finally, I agree with you that the public needs to be informed about burglaries. As in all crimes, timing is important in order that the evidence does not become cold. Someone may have had information relating to the crimes committed in the article; however, that evidence may have dissipated considering the time lapse.

@justice. Here's a clue: the expression "are you for real" is a polite, idiomatic way of questioning your IQ. It has nothing to do at all with reality or the "lack of reality," whatever that might mean. That said, it is of no consequence at all that there was a lapse of time before I wrote. You also missed my point entirely. Reread. See if you can figure it out.

@Michael, sooooo what is your IQ? Additionally, keep your idiomatic expressions to yourself, they have no place in this society where most people speak more than one language and "expressions" are often misinterpreted. Michael, how many languages are you proficient in, excluding slang? By the way, are you even old enough to post on this forum? Is your IQ high enough to qualify you for Mensa? Learn your manners, then post. Do you have any evidence the police can use in those robberies?

The Record reported that Mayor Vergano did not favor a townhall on the crime spree, but rumor has it Lonni Miller Ryan will bring the matter up @ tonight's council meeting which can be seen on public tv 77, this should be interesting.

Sometimes when I get really scared by bad news, I close my eyes and put my hands over my eyes and say "there is no place like home".
