Morristown is among towns across northern New Jersey hit by burglars who are targeting concessions stands at Little League ballfields.
At least 20 ballparks in Bergen, Passaic, Essex and Morris counties have been burglarized in recent weeks, according to ABC-TV.
Bandits have stolen money from cash registers and food items from shelves, and caused expensive damage to concession stand doors pried open with crow bars.
Thieves forced their way through a door at the Burnham Park concesssion stand in Morristown on May 16, 2019, making off with $350 in cash and assorted candy items, Morristown Public Safety Director Michael Corcoran Jr. told Morristown Green on Thursday.
“We’d love to invite them back to Morristown to have a little chat with our Detectives,” the public safety department said on Facebook.
A security video from Hasbrouck Heights this week shows a suspect described as a white male with an average build, wearing glasses, gloves, and a dark hoodie.
The second is a white female with a thin build. She’s wearing a white hoodie, white pants, and gloves. They ransacked that concession room around 3 am, the TV station reported.
Corcoran said Morristown police are part of an investigation involving “multiple jurisdictions.”
