FAIR LAWN, N.J. – Fair Lawn police got a boost from a borough resident who pointed them to a South Jersey man moments after he burglarized a local home, authorities said Monday.

Officers responding to the Union Street burglary call just before 2 p.m. Saturday were shown a rear window that had been forced open, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

Taken were her Ipad, sunglasses, a Fitbit and assorted jewelry, along with a blue Nike boog bag and an ID card – all worth a combined $1,500, he said.

Moments later, a Williams Street resident told officers canvassing the neighborhood that he’d seen a suspicious-looking man carrying a blue book bag walking toward the nearby county park.

In no time, Detective Anthony Lugo and Officers Thomas Spear and Nicholas Snyder spotted 48-year-old Barry Green of Cherry Hill on Broadway at Rosa Parks Boulevard in Paterson, Metzler said.

Proceeds from the break-in were found in the book bag, he said.

Green was released on a summons to answer burglary, theft and burglar tool possession charges in court.
