Two high end SUVs were stolen from the driveway of a High Mountain Road resident overnight after the key fobs were left in both cars, according to Franklin Lakes Police.
The High Mountain Road resident reported that during the overnight hours a 2012 BMW X5 and a 2011 Land Rover were entered and stolen, police said. The cars were unlocked with their key fobs left in the vehicles.
The garage door of the home was also entered, but the vehicle stored there had a disconnected battery and thieves let it be, according to police.
There were no signs of forced entry into the garage and cops believe that a garage door opener from one of the vehicles was used to gain entry.
Detective Jeffrey Jost and Officer Robert Smith investigated.
Last month Franklin Lakes Police arrested two men — including one from Oakland — on charges related to a pair of car burglaries committed in August.
Matthew Krzysik, 21, of Oakland, and Ryan Goodyear, 19, of Charlotte, N.C., were charged on two counts of burglary to a motor vehicle, two counts of theft and one count of identity theft.
