Garfield home burglary caught on surveillance video

Thieves made off with $10,000 worth of cash and jewelry after a home burglary in Garfield.



Investigators do have some leads because the homeowner had the security system Ring.com installed inside the home. The system alerts the homeowner by phone whenever someone rings their door bell. The system also records who is at the door.



The homeowner was riding on a New York City subway at the time of the burglary, so he did not get the call. His wife came home as the suspects were inside.



"There was nothing out of the ordinary that my wife and I saw within the weeks leading up to the incident," the homeowner, identified only as Paul, says. "Within a timeframe of 10 minutes, my house was burglarized. [My wife] came home and saw the suspect in the house."



The suspects ran right by Paul's wife and were able to get away.



Prior to the burglary, the thieves are heard asking one another about an alarm. It also appears that they were speaking into a walkie-talkie, so Paul believes there may have been a third suspect as well.



Anyone who may recognize the suspects or has any information about the burglary is asked to call Detective Mark Amos at 973-478-8500 Ext. 4117.
