Detectives Investigate Farmstead Lane Burglary

Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department is actively investigating a residential burglary that occurred on Farmstead Lane on April 11, 2017, between the hours of 8:00-8:45 P.M., No one was home at the time of the incident. Unknown actors gained entry to the residence by forcing open a kitchen window. Once inside, the actors ransacked the master bedroom and allegedly stole an undisclosed amount of jewelry and a 9 mm handgun.

Witnesses in the neighborhood apparently observed the actors and described them as two African American males, wearing white tee-shirts. They were seen putting items into a white sedan, believed to possibly be a Honda Civic. The vehicle then pulled away with no lights on and turned onto Long Acres Road towards Hollywood Avenue.

"We would like to remind our residents that they should call the police department to report any suspicious activities in their neighborhoods. Since they are the ones who live there and are familiar with normal conditions, they are the best to determine what is suspicious" said Chief Anthony G. Manna. "Very often people feel they are bothering the police when they call on such things but this is not the case. We would prefer to check on 10 suspicious conditions that turn out to be nothing then to go to one burglary that could possibly be prevent by a call from the public" said the chief.

Anyone who may have any information about this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Jeffrey Didyk of the Fairfield Police Department’s Investigative Division at (973) 227-1400. All information will be kept confidential.
