To assist with the investigation, the North Caldwell Fire Department arrived on the scene with a search light, while mutual aid came from the Caldwell Police, Essex Fells Police, West Caldwell Police, and Verona Police departments.
"Officer Krueser's sense to turn around
and check on a suspicious vehicle
prevented an incident which, without his intervention,
easily have become serious," Deuer remarked.
"He and Officer Herbert did an outstanding job
apprehending three suspects and
took three dangerous individuals off the street."

"Officer Krueser's proactive actions while on patrol at four in the morning should bring a level of comfort to our residents,
knowing that twenty-four hours a day they are afforded
complete protection, even while they are sleeping," said the Chief.
