  1. So let me get this straight: someone breaks into your house, you call the cops, the cops arrive, they find a suspect who has broken into your house, but you refuse to press charges? What am I missing here?

  2. Spring Avenue seems to be a street to avoid

  3. “A description was provided of the actor and patrol located a person in the area. ”

    This makes no sense whatsoever! It’s 4:15am. How many (non-sleeping) people would be in close proximity of this residence at that time of the morning? There was a VERY HIGH probability that the person the police located was the perpetrator.

    Questions for the Ridgewood Police Department:
    1) Where does the “actor” live? (if not in the proximate area, then red flag #1)
    2) What was the person doing in the area at 4:15am? (if no sensible and defensible answer was given, then red flag #2)
    3) Did police process the crime scene (collect fingerprints from door handles, etc.)? Or, can’t we be bothered to do a proper crime scene investigation?

    This is disturbing on many levels…

  4. If the scumbag who broke into my house made it out alive I would certainly be pressing charges. Not pressing charges is just an invitation to come back. Everyone is getting soft. Shoot first, ask questions later.

  5. I know I would beat the shit out of the guy. Chain them up to the pipe in my garage. Teach them a lesson. That’s how I roll. And then when I’m done I’ll call the police. They’ll be lucky I don’t Break their hands. What pussies

  6. Your anonymity shows your toughness.

  7. “What am I missing here?” No victim no crime. If they don’t want to press charges they are no longer victims.

    Red flag 1 They could be from anywhere, it’s not against the law to walk the streets of Ridgewood if you don’t live here.

    Red flag 2 Its not against the law to walk the streets of Ridgewood at any time.

    Question # 3 The homeowner is the victim. If they refuse to sign a complaint and testify then the police do not have a witness therefore no case

    To settle the posters mind you don’t have to be white to walk the streets of Ridgewood. Just in case they were wondering.

  9. “Red flag 1 They could be from anywhere, it’s not against the law to walk the streets of Ridgewood if you don’t live here.”

    True, it is not against the law to walk the streets of Ridgewood at any time. However, it is terribly SUSPICIOUS to be found walking the neighborhood in the dark at 4:15am. Minimally, this person would be a SUSPECT (if the homeowner filed a complaint, that is).

    This story just makes no sense at all…

  10. What the hell is going on

  11. Your right Tom. Maybe the victim didn’t want to go to court to testify to the identity of the suspect.

  12. Drug addicts calling at 4:15 Am

    Homeowners nightmare

    Description please

    Our area seen as easy pickings
    Key fobs left on dash etc

  13. Likely called their realtor to cash out and get the hell out of soft on crime
    Ridgewood

    A large quiet dog would have been justice
