East Amwell/Raritan

The Hunterdon County prosecutor, chief of detectives, Raritan Township Police and New Jersey State Police Kingwood Station are investigating multiple burglaries that occurred on Aug. 12 and 16 at six residences on Old York Road in Raritan Twp. and East Amwell Twp.

Law enforcement believes that the suspects may be ringing the doorbell at homes prior to breaking in. Residents should be extra vigilant when their doorbell rings, they advise.

“The person at the door may have a planned excuse for being at the residence, whether looking for directions, soliciting work or just saying they must have the wrong house,” says the prosecutor’s office. “Being prepared to call to 9-1- 1 before answering the door may give patrol units those few extra moments of response time needed to intercept these suspects. If it just doesn’t seem right, it may not be  and having police check these subjects out may point law enforcement to the offenders.”

Law enforcement asks anyone with information regarding the above mentioned crimes to please call your local police department or the Major Crimes Unit of the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s office at (908) 788- 1129.

(Information is provided by law enforcement and court officials, and is assumed accurate. All suspects and arrested persons are presumed not guilty unless proven guilty in a Court of Law or until such rights are waived by the accused.)
