The Paramus Police Department has arrested and charged a Bloomfield man with among other things, burglary. The Defendant is alleged to have broken the glass doors on two store fronts in a strip mall in Paramus, New Jersey before rummaging through the registers on July 6th. The Defendant was able to make off with some cash from both a Supercuts and Super Juice Nation. While in Super Juice Nation the Defendant is also alleged to have removed a small safe as well. The Defendant was actually caught on a video recording committing the burglaries, so all that was left for the police to do was ID the Defendant. In an effort to break the case, the Paramus Police Department send out a statewide all points bulletin for the Defendant. Fortunately, the Madison Police Department was able to make a positive ID of the Defendant. To make things even easier for Paramus, the Defendant had already been picked up by the Newark Police Department on an unrelated matter.
When Paramus was actually able to interview the Defendant he allegedly made a full confession and even told them were the safe and the proceeds from the burglaries were. The Defendant was arrested and formally charged with two counts of burglary in the third degree, criminal mischief in the third degree and theft in the third degree. He is currently sitting in the Essex County Jail on a $10,000 bail. The burglary charges the Defendant is facing are the most serious and if convicted, he could be facing up to five (5) years in a State Prison on each count.
