SADDLE RIVER - Two North Jersey police departments are teaming up to catch a serial cat burglar.

Police in Saddle River and Ho-Ho-Kus are trying to nab the person suspected in several break-ins. In some cases, the residents were home at the time.

The robber has been stealing jewelry and cash in each incident.

Police are asking the public to remain vigilant. Ed Zipfel, of Saddle River, says he isn't taking any chances.

"I think everybody is nervous,” he says. “I'm going to increase the amount of security I have in my home. Video in two places."

Residents are also being urged to leave lights on and activate burglar alarms when they go out.

There is a public meeting set for next Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Saddle River Town Hall. Residents will be able to learn more about how to protect themselves.
