Motor Vehicle Thefts Occur Over Weekend

Fairfield (NJ) Two vehicles were stolen and two others had items removed from them from July 8-10, 2017. On July 9th, the Fairfield Police Department were contacted by the Newark Police Department and advised that they had recovered a 2017 Cadillac that was crashed and abandoned in their city and that it was registered to a Concord Road resident and had not yet been reported stolen. Officers then went to the residence and found that the homeowner was unaware that the vehicle had been taken. The vehicle was last seen at the residence on July 9th at 1:15 A.M. The keys were left in the vehicle.

On July 10th, at approximately 4:00 A.M., Officer Christopher Yoo was on patrol and flagged down by a Little Falls Road resident who told him that his father’s 2008 Acura was missing from their driveway. The vehicle was last seen at 2:00 A.M. and also had its keys left in it. This vehicle was later also recovered in Newark, N.J.

In addition to the thefts of motor vehicles, two other vehicles were illegally entered during this same time period and had items removed from them. One was on Glenroy Road South and the other was on Liberty Court.

“Once again, it appears that Fairfield has become the target of car thieves and that residents need to make sure that they do not leave their keys or other personal valuables in their cars” said Chief Anthony G. Manna. The police department is encouraging residents to immediately report any suspicious activities observed in their neighborhoods to the police.
