2 Men Charged in Teaneck Burglaries

Burglar also faces weapons charges, police said

Police arrested two men in connection with a pair of burglaries in Teaneck Wednesday, leading investigators to recover stolen goods and three handguns, authorities said.

Teaneck officers were called to a house on Hanover Street for a burglar alarm going off around 6 p.m., police said. Officers discovered a glass patio door had been smashed, and assorted jewelry stolen, Police Chief Robert Wilson said in a news release. While at the scene, officers learned another nearby house on the same street had been burglarized and found the bedroom ransacked.

Township police immediately set up surveillance on the Cranford Place home of a man they said was suspected in a string of burglaries. Investigators saw the man, identified as 37-year-old Kali Carter, pull up with another man identified as 21-year-old Hackensack resident Hakeem Chance, police said.

With Teaneck detectives following, Carter and Chance drove to an Englewood apartment complex on William Street where investigators saw the pair toss items taken from Hanover Street in a dumpster, police said. Detectives then moved in to arrest the two.

Investigators from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Burglary Task Force obtained a search warrant for Carter’s Teaneck home and the car the pair was riding in, police said. During the search, police said they found three handguns, burglar’s tools, jewelry and a gold testing kit.

Chance faces two counts each of burglary and theft, police said. His bail was set at $10,000, with no ten percent option.

Carter was charged with the two break-ins, but also multiple weapons offenses, police said. He was held on $750,000 bail, with no 10 percent option.

State Department of Corrections records show Carter was paroled after serving time for robbery and weapons offenses, bringing charges for certain persons not to possess a handgun. 

Investigators from 14 other Bergen County police agencies also assisted in the investigation through the task force, police said.

Meredith Graves, the medical student who foolishly tried to check her legally owned handgun at the World Trade Center, faces 3 years in prison, and Brian Aitken, a law abiding NJ business owner who was legally transoprting locked and unloaded firearms, was sentenced to 7 1/2 years in prison and had his sentence commuted by Gov Christie. But these lowlifes, already convicted of robbery and weapons offenses, were walking our streets. Here is what needs to happen to both of them: 25 years to life for the commision of a felony while in possession of a firearm, no possibility of parol. Now THAT is the type of gun control that might work.
