Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, Chief of Detectives John J. Kuczynski, Clinton Township Police Department Officer in Charge Douglas Higgins are announcing that police are investigating an attempted burglary and a burglary that occurred in Clinton Township on January 10, 2017.
According to Prosecutor Kearns, “On January 10, 2017, two residences on Blossom Hill Road in Clinton Twp. were victimized by unknown persons. One residence was burglarized and one residence sustained damage from an attempted burglary. We believe that the suspects may be surveilling the homes prior to breaking in. Residents should be extra vigilant regarding suspicious activities and vehicles in their neighborhoods especially in the early evening hours. Calling local police when something just doesn’t seem right may give patrol units the opportunity to identify these individuals and protect your neighbors.”
While the investigations into these crimes continue, the Prosecutor asks all of our county residents to remain vigilant, lock your doors and report to police any persons or vehicles that appear to be unfamiliar in their neighborhoods. The Prosecutor reported that vigilant neighbors have been responsible for multiple arrests in the past.
If anyone has any information regarding the above mentioned crimes or any crime please call your local police department or the Major Crimes Unit of the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s office at 908-788-1129.
