Two men were caught with loot from a burglary they had just committed when they were stopped Tuesday night in Teaneck, police said.

Tyrone Goins, 34, of Edgewater, and Jamar Travis, 27, of Paterson, were each charged with receiving stolen property, concealing evidence and possession of burglary tools. Travis was also charged with hindering apprehension for giving false information regarding his identity to officers, Teaneck police said.

According to police, Detective Edward Kazmierczak observed a vehicle pass him with an occupant he recognized as Goins. Kazmierczak followed the vehicle until it parked on Summit Avenue, police said.

Kazmierczak and Detective Kevin Brennan approached the vehicle and saw one of the occupants try to throw a gold bracelet into the roadway, police said. The officers then saw several items in the back seat that included a fur coat and women's handbags, police said.

Goins and Travis also were in possession of gloves and ski masks, police said.

Teaneck police determined some of the items in the vehicle were stolen earlier that night in a Fair Lawn residential burglary, according to the report.

Police executed a search warrant on Thursday of the vehicle and were able to identify some of the items as those stolen from a Paramus home on Monday, according to the report.

Other items were still being identified and additional charges are possible pending the investigation, police said.

There has to be something missing to this story. HAS to be.

Why does there have to be something missing? Sounds like a great job by a great police department to me. Just a side note, I notice some are very quick to criticize the police at the slightest hint of impropriety, but those same people are never too quick with an attaboy, when the police perform admirably. Sad...

Ummm. I view things from a different lens. And for the record, I never implied what was missing. You assumed. Good day.
