Week in Review: Easter Burglaries, 108 MPH Arrest and Housewives Party

Here's what you may have missed last week.

Burglars smashed the rear doors of three Wyckoff homes on Hil-Ray Avenue and Wiltsie Court and ransacked bedrooms Easter night before escaping police apprehension, according to police.  

A Wood-Ridge man was drunk and driving at nearly twice the speed limit on Route 208 when he was arrested by police early Sunday, authorities said.

The incident echoed a fatal crash three weeks ago in Fair Lawn.

Stars from the Bravo television network were on the prowl for a good time at the network's upfronts party on Wednesday night at Center 548 in Manhattan.

Network notables like Caroline Manzo and the always-flirty Kathy Griffin talked up their respective shows but avoided giving away any surprises from the upcoming seasons.

Five local teens were arrested after police say they found them trespassing with drug paraphernalia at a friend's parents' house Saturday night.

Cops found the three 17-year-olds and and two 18-year-olds on the property of a Pulis Avenue home after someone reported suspicious activity at the residence, according to Lieutenant John Bakelaar.

A trio of minors were taking turns firing a pellet-type gun in the backyard of a Franklin Avenue home Thursday afternoon when one of them shot a neighbor in the arm, resulting in charges against the 17-year-old alleged shooter, said. 

The victim didn't sustain any serious injuries as a result, but the 17-year-old male who shot the Airsoft gun will be charged with simple assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, Franklin Lakes Lieutenant John Bakelaar said Monday. The juvenile charged was also the owner of the gun.
