Police investigate attempted burglaries in Parsippany-Troy Hills

PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS, NJ (Morris County) – Homeowners in Parsippany-Troy Hills are being extra vigilant after police said a burglar tried to break into two different homes and a vehicle last week.

On Jan. 5, at around 4:20 a.m., a man attempted to break into a residence on Old Bloomfield Avenue through a front window, police said.

The occupants woke up due to the noise created by the suspect at which time they turned on their interior lights and activated the alarm system. The suspect fled the area and the victim immediately called 911,police said.

Then at around 4:29 a.m., a man was observed on CCTV footage attempting to gain entry to an Audi parked at a residence on Winfield Drive, police said.

When the suspect could not get into the locked vehicle, he attempted to gain entry into the home through a rear door of the house. The suspect fled when the occupants inside the house woke up, police said.

“It is believed both incidents involved the same suspect,” police said. “We believe the goal during each burglary attempt was to steal high end vehicles from their driveways.”

During the second attempt, the homeowner delayed reporting the incident. Police say it is imperative that they be notified as soon as possible so officers can effectively search the area immediately after an incident for suspect(s).

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Parsippany Police Department at 973-263-4300.
