On December 22, 2019, at approximately 1 PM, Sgt. Karas, PO Murphy, and PO
Silva were assigned to a Package Theft Detail and were in the area of FER Blvd
and Somerset Street when they observed a thin, white male walking in the area
looking into vestibules of businesses and apartments, places where delivered
packages are commonly stored. Upon observing police, the suspect began to flee
the area and was stopped. The 44 year old male was found to be a wanted
person out of Essex County, NJ and was placed under arrest. He was later
turned over to the Essex County Jail.
