I’m writing this post to implore all of you to be mindful of leaving your vehicles open with keys inside or valuable items in plain view within the same.
Our patrols, who work diligently throughout the night, spotted a stolen vehicle entering our jurisdiction during the early morning hours of March 23, 2021. Our patrols attempted to stop the vehicle and a high-speed pursuit, in excess of 100 MPH, ensued. Fortunately, none of our officers were injured as a result of the pursuit, however, such action places our officers in grave danger.
During the overnight hours of March 27, 2021, one (1) vehicle was stolen and another entered at two separate residences on Insley Avenue. Both vehicles were unlocked and the stolen vehicle had the keys inside the same.
Our patrols are working tirelessly to keep our Borough, residents, homes and property safe; however, these suspects will continue to try to victimize our residents for as long as they believe there is opportunity for success. If residents continue to leave their vehicles unsecure, with keys and valuables within the same, these suspects will continue to prey upon Florham Park.
Please help us to prevent future acts of victimization against our residents by being diligent regarding the securing of your vehicles and homes. We rely upon your assistance, as force multipliers within the community, to maintain the safety for all residents within the Borough.
