Tenafly NJ, another reminder to take your keys, remove your valuables and lock your vehicle . Tenafly Police Department reported that on Tuesday night, Tenafly Police Officers stopped a vehicle on Coppell Drive that was observed driving suspiciously in the area. As officers approached, the car quickly parked, turned off all their lights, and the two occupants reclined their seats in an attempt not to be seen by passing cars. The driver had an active warrant, and both were ultimately arrested after they were found to have a ski mask and rubber gloves in their possession. Based upon our investigation, we believe these two career criminals were in our town looking to steal a car. While this arrest highlights the proactive efforts of our officers to find and arrest burglars and car thieves that target our community, it should also serve as a reminder for all residents to remove key fobs and lock your cars even when parked in your own driveway. Criminals will continue to target our community until they realize there is nothing to gain by coming here. Let’s all do our part to keep our neighborhoods safe by locking our cars and reporting any suspicious activity to the police department as soon as you see it. Call us 24/7 at (201) 568-5100 to report anything out of the ordinary.
