Alarms, surveillance cams don’t deter masked Wyckoff burglars

YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST: Surveillance cameras caught grainy images of two men who kicked their way into a Wyckoff home last night, ripped the alarm system and siren speakers from the walls and took jewelry from the master bedroom — the town’s fourth burglary in 10 days.

Both had their heads wrapped to prevent identification during the 7 p.m. break-in on Bridle Path, Police Chief Benjamin Fox said this afternoon.

Even homes with alarms systems and cameras can be burglarized — requiring increased vigilance on the part of neighbors, Fox said.

“In Wyckoff or any community, the greatest defense against burglaries are residents reporting suspicious persons and vehicles that they observe,” he said.

“We are now approaching the holiday season when homes tend to be unoccupied more often and there are early hours of darkness, both of which lead to increased instances of burglaries,” the chief said. “The eyes and ears of an entire town can assist the police in apprehending burglars who invade the privacy of homes and steal personal property.

“If you think it’s suspicious, report it,” Fox said.
