A caller led Clifton police to a pair of pre-dawn car burglars from Passaic, authorities said.
Officers responding to the 4 a.m. call from an Athenia Avenue resident stopped Angel Lucero, 22, and Joel Tula, 26 in a car nearby, Detective Lt. Robert Bracken said.
They arrested both after finding a “multitude of proceeds” stolen from unlocked vehicles in Clifton and elsewhere, he said.
Lucero and Tula, who had prior arrests, were charged with burglary and theft and released pending hearings.
