Ridgewood Police : Images of Burglary Suspect and vehicle caught on home security system.

Ridgewood NJ , On Friday, December 5, 2014, at 7:53 pm a Westside resident reported that their home had been forcibly entered while they were out. The unidentified actor had entered the home after smashing a first floor window with a large rock setting off the home’s alarm system. A check of the homeowner’s video surveillance system showed the attached pictured actor ringing the front door and standing outside of the home just prior to the alarm activation. Additionally the attached pictured vehicle, which appears to be a late model full size pickup truck dark in color possible with an extended cab circled the block just prior to the activation. The scene was processed by the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department Bureau of Criminal Investigation Crime Scene Unit and the matter is currently under investigation by the Ridgewood Police Department Detective Bureau. If anyone has any information concerning this crime please contact Detective Douglas Williams at (201) 251-4537.

  1. What type of pickup truck

  2. Many years ago, burglar alarm systems were monitored right at the police department dispatchers’ consoles. As a result, police response times were lightening quick. Now, alarms are monitored at a central station run by the alarm companies themselves. Your alarm goes off, the central station must then notify your police department, and then your police department responds. This time lapse allows sufficient time for burglars to get inside and grab before the police have even been notified. Thus, alarms are now a big waste of money.

  3. Alarms are not a waste of money.
    A real ‘pro’ can get around any alarm, but they usually deter the ‘amateurs’ or ‘opportunists’.
    Most alarms do have a panic button available for the occupants, and in the case of my alarm, it transmits to the central station via ‘cellular’ so it doesn’t matter if the phone lines are cut. (my keychain has an alarm control just like the one for the car)
    Most alarms also have smoke/heat detectors, which will save your dwelling by notifying the fire dept before it burns down to the ground.
    AND most insurance companies will give a 20% discount on a homeowner’s policy for a protected home which usually covers the expense of the monthly monitoring.

  4. the police should be given info to the workers who are on the road. that’s a lot of extra eye’s, on the road.

    The lag in response time allows sufficient time for plain amateurs to grab and go also. Pays to have fire alarms, but burglar alarms are a big waste. Get a dog instead.

    Huh? Do you want to take a stab at that again?
