YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Five rifles and two handguns were stolen during a Washington Township burglary, police said.
The Ridgewood Road homeowner “returned to his residence to find the front door of the residence ajar,” township Police Chief Glenn Hooper said tonight. “Officers cleared the residence and located a rear slider had been dismounted from its tracks.
“The master bedroom had been ransacked and an undetermined amount of jewelry had been taken along with five rifles and two handguns,” the chief said.
This comes after a daytime break-in Thursday on Chestnut Street in which a master bedroom was ransacked and jewelry taken after the burglar or burglars entered through an unlocked window, Hooper said.
The Bergen County Sherriff’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation processed evidence at both homes, he said.
Hooper asked that anyone with information that could help the investigation call township police: (201) 664-1140 .
