Butterworth Burglars: Teen suspects nabbed in Morris Township

Three teens from the Morristown/Morris Township area were arrested after an alert resident in the township’s Butterworth neighborhood called police on Wednesday.

Three males–one 16, the other two, age 17–were apprehended after a neighbor on Fieldstone Drive called Morris Township police.

The resident observed the suspects walk down a driveway and knock on the front door of a house, according to Butterworth residents.

Then the suspects walked to the road and waited. When nobody answered, they went around the back and forced their way through a door, residents said.

One suspect was captured at the scene by Morris Township Police Officers David Kosakowski and Nick Cevasco. Another was arrested nearby by Sgt. David Powell. The K-9 unit of the Morris County Sheriff’s Department helped track down the third suspect.

Police are asking residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1 immediately.

In particular, police ask callers to describe suspects and any vehicles involved with as much detail as possible.

To start a Neighborhood Crime Watch in the township, call the police Crime Prevention Office at 973-326-7450.
