WYCKOFF, N.J. – A Mahwah ex-con arrested twice in a little over two weeks hocked several pieces of jewelry that he swiped from a Wyckoff woman’s home, authorities said.
Detectives Sgt. Kevin Kasak, armed with a search warrant, found some of the items at the home of 55-year-old Brian Lang, authorities said.
Kasak also went to several local pawn shops and retrieved other pieces, Lt. Joseph Soto said.
Lang was charged with theft and released by a judge – only to be re-arrested by Mahwah police on Dec. 12 on theft, weapons and stolen property possession charges.
A judge again released him less than 24 hours later, under New Jersey’s 2017 bail reform law.
