A Dunkin’ Donuts in Kinnelon, New Jersey was victim of a rather bizarre burglary late last night. The suspect broke into a nearby abandoned store front in the strip mall and actually cut through the sheet rock to gain entrance into the Dunkin’ Donuts. In doing so he had to squeeze in between the studs to actually gain entrance. Once inside the store the suspect was able to make off with a safe that apparently weighted over 100 pounds. The suspect then exited the store and fled the scene with the safe in a 1994 Dodge Pick-Up truck. The whole incident was actually captured by a surveillance but apparently the footage isn’t clear enough to make a positive ID. The Kinnelon Police Department is actively investigating the case and is asking for any one with information to please come forward.
The suspect if caught will most likely be charged with two counts of burglary in the third degree, one count of theft in the third degree, possession of burglary tools and receiving stolen property since the vehicle in which he fled the scene in was stolen as well. Burglary is a rather serious offense and one that has become more and more popular in Morris County over the last few years. The increase in burglary and theft charges that the County has seen is directly related to the heroin epidemic. For more information on the offense of burglary in New Jersey please click here.
