MORRIS TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – An Essex County man was arrested for residential burglary and auto theft in Morris Township, according to Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll.
On Jan. 10, at around 3:00 p.m., police received a report of a burglary in progress. Responding officers learned that Tysean Ware, 20, of Newark twice entered a Morris Township residence, where a minor was present in the home, Carroll said.
Thereafter, video surveillance of Ware showed him getting into and stealing the resident’s 2021 Mercedes SL500 Maybach, Carroll said.
The investigation revealed Ware was in Morristown that day for a scheduled visit with his Morris County Recovery Court Probation Officer. HE was dropped off and picked up from his probation visit in a stolen Range Rover.
The stolen Range Rover was recovered in Ridgefield Park, Bergen County, with proceeds from burglaries that occurred on Jan. 10 in Mendham Township and Morris Township, Carroll said.
In June of 2022, Ware was convicted of theft of a motor vehicle and eluding stemming from an incident in Florham Park. Ware was admitted into the Morris County Recovery Court Program, over the State’s objection.
On the evening of Jan. 11, Secaucus police were involved in an incident with Ware while he was driving the stolen Mercedes-Maybach, which ultimately led to Ware ramming a Secaucus patrol vehicle. Following this incident, the stolen Mercedes-Maybach was recovered a short time later in Newark, Carroll said.
Ware has been charged in Secaucus with second-degree eluding, and second-degree receiving stolen property, Carroll said.
On Jan. 12, members of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Operations Division, the New Jersey State Police, and the Newark Police Department arrested Ware entering a vehicle outside his Newark residence, Carroll said.
Ware has been charged with second-degree conspiracy to commit theft, second-degree theft of motor vehicle, third-degree theft of personal property, third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, three counts of third-degree burglary, and fourth-degree criminal Trespass, Carroll said.
Ware was lodged in the Morris County Correctional Facility pending a pretrial detention hearing, Carroll said.
