YOU READ IT HERE FIRST : With an assist from their NJ Transit colleagues, Hasbrouck Heights police took an accused burglary into custody early this morning.

A Terrace Avenue resident reported the break-in on Thursday, Detective Michael Colaneri told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

“Possible suspects were developed,” and the list was narrowed down to 49-year-old Robert Kearns, who lives in town, Colaneri said.

An alert was then issued, he said.

NJ Transit police picked up Keans at Penn Station in Newark just after 3 o’clock this morning.

Colaneri said he and fellow Detective Joseph Armeli then went to Newark to interview him.

Kearns, who Colaneri said was carrying four watches stolen in the break-in — three gold and one black — was arrested and charged with burglary and theft.

Bail was set at $50,000 for Kearns, who was being held in the Bergen County Jail pending a court appearance.
