West Caldwell Police Chief Dennis Capriglione announced tonight that two persons were in custody in connection with the suspicious persons investigation reported early this morning.
According to police, West Caldwell officers immediately responded and located two males who were seen walking between homes on Westover Avenue and brought them to headquarters for questioning.
During the questioning, another report came in that two males were earlier seen on camera footage attempting to break into a parked car at a residence on Woodrow Place.
