Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the arrest of Robert Leszczynski Jr. (26) of Pompton Plains, N.J. and Justin Huber (29) of Pequannock, N.J. for burglary, theft and conspiracy to commit those crimes. The charges stem from a burglary that occurred on October 6, 2011 at a Fairfield Road residence where approximately $4100.00 worth of jewelry and currency was taken.
The break in the case came when the Parsippany Police Department arrested the pair on December 29, 2011 while the two were allegedly committing a burglary in that jurisdiction. Items allegedly found in their possession include receipts from a pawn shop located in Paterson, N.J. After being alerted to this information, Detectives Christopher Niemiec and Charles Zampino visited the pawn shop and were able to positively identify a Movado watch, with had an inscription on it, as being one of the items allegedly stolen during the October 6th incident and which matched the pawn receipt that was allegedly signed for and in the possession of Huber.
“This case demonstrates just how important it is for victims of burglaries and thefts to describe to police, in great detail, the items that criminals take from their homes said Chief Charles Voelker. “Often, victims think they will not get their prized possessions back but this simply is not always true. This case might have gone unsolved had it not been for the great description provided by the victim and the work of our detectives” said the chief.

They are also now being held on theFairfieldcharges in lieu of $15,000 bail each. The case will be forwarded to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office for prosecution.
