A 19-year-old Teaneck man was charged Monday in a string of thefts from the township library, police announced.
Authorities were called to the library around 5 p.m. Monday by library staffers who said they spotted a person matching the description from two thefts last week, Chief Robert Wilson said in a statement Tuesday.
Detectives noticed Warren Morgan acting suspiciously at the library and stopped him at the exit, Wilson said. Morgan agreed to be questioned at police headquarters, where he ultimately admitted to stealing an iPad on Sept. 7, an iPhone on Sept. 16, and taking an Apple laptop on Sept. 19.
In the computer theft, the victim told police she only stepped away from the laptop for a few minutes when it was stolen.
Morgan also confessed to stealing an iPhone, which hadn’t been reported to police, Wilson said.
Detectives recovered a stolen iPhone and were working to locate more of the stolen gadgets, according to police.Morgan was charged with three counts of theft and released on a summons, pending an Oct. 2 appearance at Teaneck Municipal Court.
