At 1:50AM on Monday, May 29, 2023, a burglary occurred at a Sherman Avenue residence.

Two suspects entered the residence by climbing through a first-floor window after popping its latch. The residents were home and asleep during the incident and were unharmed. The suspects rummaged through kitchen drawers where they located key fobs to the resident’s 2023 Range Rover and 2023 Mercedes Benz GLS which were parked in the driveway. The suspects used the key fobs to take both vehicles. The resident’s wallet, containing credit cards and cash, was also taken from the kitchen.

The Summit Police Department tracked the stolen Mercedes using its GPS system and recovered it approximately three hours later parked on a street in the city of Newark. Summit Police Department detectives, along with members from the Union County Sherriff’s Office Crime Scene Unit, processed the residence for trace evidence.

The incident is under investigation by the Summit Police Department Detective Bureau.
