It appears that the family was away on vacation when their motion-activated security camera sent them an alert that someone was in the home. The homeowner’s were actually able to observe the Defendant walking around the home and opening dresser draws searching for items. Apparently after receiving the alert, the homeowner’s alerted a family member, who then alerted the local police. When the Cedar Grove Police Department arrived on scene they immediately located the Defendant, a twenty-seven (27) year old Bloomfield resident, who as still inside the home at the time.
