Boonton Township Police are looking for five people who they say were involved in a home break-in on Mountain Run Friday.
The suspects made off with several items and left the home in shambles.
Security footage shows three masked suspects entering the home through an unlocked window just after 12:30 p.m.
“They took whatever jewelry my mom had left - she passed quite a while ago,” said Carol Torres, the victim’s daughter. “They took all of it that he [my father] had intended to give to us, of course. And then his big antique knife collection, for some reason they decided to take that. It seemed like they were trying to look for cash more than anything, because they just rummaged through everything. Just dumped all the drawers out."
Torres is grateful that when the men entered her father’s home, he was out shopping.
“He’s a pretty strong guy, so he’s doing better than most would after something like that, but of course, he’s still shaken up quite a bit,” Torres said. “His home is very private, as everyone else's, and knowing that these strangers were going through his house was pretty devastating to him.”
Surveillance photos show a white SUV unfamiliar to the neighborhood. Police are looking for three suspects, all identified as Hispanic men. There are also two people of interest seen outside.
Torres says it’s a far cry from the neighborhood she grew up in.
“He said that there were a couple of robberies over Christmastime too,” Torres said. “It’s just something that you don’t expect in that town. I grew up there when I was much younger. You’d leave your doors unlocked and you’re completely fine and you’d never think something like this would happen, but unfortunately, it did.”
Boonton Township Police ask anyone with information about the burglary to give them a call at 973-402-4022.
