A Message from Mountain Lakes Police Chief

MOUNTAIN LAKES — Over the past two weeks Mountain Lakes has experienced two concerning incidents involving burglaries and attempted burglaries of homes by criminals attempting to acquire keys to steal cars. We know that such events can be extremely frightening. We want to assure you that the Mountain Lakes Police Department is working 24/7 with our various partners, including the State Police, Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, as well as dozens of other jurisdictions experiencing the same crimes. 

We fully expect that our investigations will lead to the arrests of those involved shortly. In the meantime, we have increased targeted patrols, and have implemented additional measures to help deter would-be criminals. 

Keeping in mind that nothing is 100% guaranteed to cease all crime, we would like to let the public know what they can do to help avoid becoming a victim of such crimes.

  • See something/say something. If something seems suspicious, call 9-1-1 right away. 
  • Always lock vehicles and all doors and windows of your homes.
  • Install motion sensor lights around your home.
  • Install audible alarms on doors and windows.
  • When keeping vehicle keys in the home, do not leave them in a location visible to people looking in through a window.
  • Keep vehicles in a garage whenever possible.

We ask that anyone living along Morris Avenue between Midvale Road and Fanny Road check any exterior cameras to see if they may have caught the fleeing suspect vehicle on video at approximately 4:20 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. on December 19. 

If you find that you have a video, please email Detective Sean Torres at storres@mtnlakespd.org.
