Fairfield Police Investigate Series of Commercial Burglaries

Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department’s Investigative Section is investigating three commercial burglaries that appear to have occurred February 2, 2022. The first of these burglaries occurred at Corrados Market, located at 480 Route 46 East. This burglary was discovered at approximately 10:04 PM when Fairfield officers were dispatched to the location on an activated burglar alarm. The first arriving officers found the front glass door was smashed in. It appears that the unknown actor(s) stole a cash draw containing New Jersey lottery money, as well as a draw from a register.


Based upon this, officers checked other business along Route 46. At approximately 11:00 PM, officers discovered a burglary occurred at the BP gas station, located at 6 Route 46 East. Unknown actor(s) smashed the glass door and removed the tray from the cash register.


The last of these burglaries was discovered on February 3, 2022 but was found to have occurred on February 2nd at approximately 9:46 PM at the Fairfield Hand Car Wash, located at 1275 Bloomfield Avenue. Unknown actor(s) smashed the front glass door and stole cash from the register’s draw.


While the modus operandi for each of these burglaries appear to link them, Fairfield detectives are still awaiting further investigative leads to confirm this. Anyone with any information about these crimes are asked to contact the Fairfield Police Department’s Investigative Section at (973) 227-1400. All information will be kept confidential.
