Update: Duo Admitted to LV Break-Ins, Cops Say

The following information was provided by the Washington Township Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A pair of Passaic County residents have been arrested in connection with multiple break-ins throughout Washington Township over the past two months, Lt. Doug Compton said.

Emily Warrick, 20, formerly of Long Valley, and Kyle Jackson, 41, were arrested on March 23 and charged on multiple counts of burglary and theft, Compton said.

Warrick and Jackson are responsible for alleged residential burglaries on North Bridge Drive, Paula Drive, , Arbor Way and Fieldstone Drive, Compton said.

The pair would forcibly enter a residence and allegedly steal jewelry and electronics, Compton said.

The arrest was made by Det. Sgt. Chris Bratus and Det. Cpl. Lucas Allen.

A post on cliffviewpilot.com explains Jackson is an ex-con, and is being held on $50,000 bail, while Warrick is being held on $30,000 bail.

The pair admitted to all five burglaries in Long Valley, Compton said.

Both persons were charged with five counts of burglary, four counts of theft, five counts of conspiracy to commit burglary, and three counts of criminal mischief.

Warrick is currently lodged in Bergen County Correctional Facility and Jackson is lodged in Middlesex County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail, Compton said.

The arrest was a joint effort by the Washington Township Police, Edison, and Fairlawn Police Departments.

Detectives from the three departments has similar descriptions of the duo and their vehicle, Compton said, and helped in making the arrest.

The Washington Township Police Department is also advising residents to remain vigilant for suspicious vehicles and/or people in their neighborhoods as there are still numerous residential burglaries that Warrick and Jackson were not responsible for, Compton said.

If anybody observes something suspicious, they are requested to call 908-876-3232 and press ”0” to speak with a police dispatcher.

Great work police department. I am so proud to have such a hard working department protecting me and my own. You guys deserve a raise ( FOUR years without an increase ????? ). LOWEST in the county in terms of compensation ????? Maybe this town wants the lower echelon providing service to them. Keep disrespecting our men and women who work 24-7, 365. Nights, holidays, weekends. All fun and games til something goes down.

Such good news. Well done detectives and officers! It is a relief to know another set of thieves are off the streets. Thank you to everyone who keeps an eye on their neighborhood for suspicious activity and to anyone who provided information to the police.
