[ARCHIVED] Man Who Burglarized Same House Three Times this Year Arrested


BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- A man has been arrested and confessed to burglarizing the same Harrison St. house three times this year. 

The suspect, 53-year-old Daniel Jones, of Bloomfield, was trespassing on the Harrison Street residence Monday morning, when an occupant who noticed him walking around the back door called the police. Bloomfield Police Detectives observed a white male fitting the description of Mr. Jones moments later, just a few blocks away. After questioning the suspect on the street, he was issued a summons for Criminal Trespass and transported to Police headquarters. At headquarters, Police interrogated him about the three previous burglaries at that same location this year, and he confessed to each incident.

“We suspected Mr. Jones of the previous burglaries, in June, October, and earlier this month, where he stole several thousand dollars in cash. Our investigations gave us enough evidence to get a confession upon his arrest for trespassing yesterday. This is a reminder for residents, that when you see something, say something, because that is how we solve, and deter crimes, together," said Director of Public Safety Samuel DeMaio. “When residents report seeing crimes or suspicious activity, it helps our Police officers to do their job and keep our community safe.”

Jones was charged with three counts of Burglary, Theft & Criminal Trespass and one charge for Possession of CDS. He was transported to the Essex County Correctional Facility.
