PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS, NJ (Morris County) – Parsippany Police are investigating after a stolen vehicle crashed and several vehicles were burglarized early Tuesday morning.

On Dec. 29, at 1:15 a.m., police responded to an attempted vehicle burglary which was captured on CCTV by a resident on Prospect Road in Lake Parsippany. While on scene, the Parsippany Police Department’s Communication Center received a call reporting a motor vehicle crash in the area of Marmora Road and Frontage Road and multiple people exited the vehicle and fled on foot, Parsippany police Sergeant Brian Conover said.

Responding officers located the vehicle which was determined to be stolen and due to the likelihood that both incidents were related, neighboring towns were requested to assist in setting up a perimeter. During the incident, other residents called our Communication Center reporting unknown individuals running through their yards in the Lake Parsippany area, Conover said.

During the course of the initial investigation, three individuals were located and detained by the responding New Jersey State Troopers and officers. A firearm was located in the area of where one suspect was found, Conover said.

The three individuals that were detained have not been charged as of now, Conover told RNJ.

Police took multiple reports of vehicle burglaries as residents woke up this morning and checked their vehicles. If you believe your vehicle was broken into, do not enter the vehicle and contact the police department’s non-emergency number 973-263-4300, Conover said.

These incidents remain under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Parsippany Police Department’s Investigative Division at 973-263-4311.
