Arrest made in residential burglary December 2

On December 2, at approximately 1:06 PM, the Bergenfield Police Communications Center received a 911 call reporting a "break in" of a single family home on Norfolk Street. The caller, who was inside the residence at the time, reported a male had forcibly entered the home through the front door. The man then fled on foot onto Norfolk Street when confronted by the resident. 

Workers from a PSE&G utility crew in the area observed the male running and then enter a vehicle being operated by a second male. The utility workers suspected something suspicious had occurred. They provided a description of the males and the vehicle to responding patrol officers, who then advised police communications who in return relayed the information, via radio, to other surrounding jurisdictions.

Teaneck Police officers stopped a vehicle matching the description on Forest Avenue in their

town. Both the driver and occupant were detained by officers from Bergenfield and Teaneck, while further investigation took place. The two males were identified by witnesses and then placed under arrest.  Both were transported to Bergenfield Police headquarters, where they were formally processed and charged with the following:

1. Christopher Thompson, age 45, of Bergenfield, NJ 
Burglary and Criminal Attempt Theft
Bail $70,000, 10% allowed 

2. Richard Allen, age 53, of Teaneck, NJ
Complicity (Accomplice/Aiding another) to commit Burglary and Theft
Bail $70,000, 10% allowed

Neither of the defendants was able to post bond and both were remanded to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of bail.
