In the early morning hours of September 21, Detective Sergeant Charlie Schimpf and Detective Joe Sloan, along with members of the Kearny Police Detective Bureau and the Newark Police Department’s Emergency Services Unit, executed a search warrant at the Newark address of suspects that had been identified in a recent rash of vehicle burglaries in both communities. Two arrests were made (both Newark males) and multiple open investigations were able to be closed. One suspect had numerous active warrants from surrounding jurisdictions as well. Stolen property was also recovered and is in the process of being cataloged and returned.
The Harrison Police Department thanks the Kearny Police Department for sharing information and collaboratively working on this investigation and extends its gratitude also to the Newark Police for lending their resources.
