Thief Leaves Mercedes on Blocks, Snags Tires

Thefts, attempted thefts from autos reported in Nutley

Several vehicles were burglarized last week, including one car whose tires were stolen, Nutley police reported.

The owner of a car parked in a driveway on Hickory Road called police shortly before 9 am on Sept. 30 to report that someone had opened the vehicle’s glove box. A similar incident occurred on Hampton Avenue Oct. 3, when the victim reported that someone had taken a pair of sunglasses and a GPS unit from their vehicle. On Oct. 4, someone damaged the door locks on an Infiniti parked in the driveway of a Grant Avenue home but was  not able to enter the car.

On Oct. 1, a  Cathedral Avenue resident saw a man, described as black and wearing a baseball cap and dark clothing, leaving their property just as the victim was pulling into the driveway. The victim later discovered that someone had entered another vehicle parked at the home, although nothing was reported taken.

A Mercedes parked at a Yale Street home was found propped up on blocks with two front tires and rims, two front seats and the front floor mats all missing. That incident was reported Oct. 2 around 5 pm.
