Cedar Grove Officers Kennedy, Cassella, Smigelsky, and O'Halloran Stop a Ridge Road Burglary in Progress
CEDAR GROVE, NJ - Cedar Grove Police Chief Richard Vanderstreet announced that earlier today Patrol Officers Raymond Cassella, John Smigelsky, Nicole O’Halloran and Lieutenant John Kennedy investigated a early morning Ridge Road burglary in process which led to the arrest of John J. Carluccio, 27, of Bloomfield, for burglarizing the home.
At 2:01am today, police received a 911 call from the Ridge Road homeowner, who was away from the residence, reporting that someone was in their home.
The homeowner explained that a motion-activated interior camera sensor alerted them and that they could reportedly see the suspect was in their bedroom rummaging through a closet and dressers.
Police arrived immediately and found Carluccio in the home; he was detained without incident.
Further investigation by the four officers determined that Carluccio reportedly
removed a ground-floor window air conditioner to get into the home. Vanderstreet stated that Carluccio was an acquaintance of the homeowner’s adult son and was aware that there would be no one at home at the time of the burglary.
Carluccio was released pending a Superior Court Arraignment in Newark on July 16.
