Five Businesses Broken Into Overnight

Police are investigating five commercial "smash and grab" burglaries that occurred overnight from Saturday into Sunday.

Five businesses were broken into overnight Saturday in a string of "smash and grab" burglaries, said.

In all five of the burglaries, which police believe are connected, the glass front door of each business was broken to gain entry and cash was taken from the register.

The burglaries were concentrated in the Radburn Shopping Center area and a commercial strip along Saddle River Road.

The businesses hit include and  in Radburn, and Ness Pizza, and the New French Nails on Saddle River Road.

"It's crazy," sighed Benny's co-owner Diana Stella, who said the burglars made off with only petty cash from her restaurant's register.

New French Nails manager Stacy Kim said she no longer feels safe in the area and is considering purchasing surveillance equipment for her salon in wake of the break-in.

Workers from S&L Glass made the rounds Sunday to install new glass doors at each of the burglarized businesses, all of which remained open Sunday.

im still trying to figure out how nobody saw anything gonig on right next to the 24 hour cvs. the criminals are either intelligent and plans out these crimes or they are completely careless and just get away by dumb luck

I took a snapshot of it when I went to CVS early that morning...it was of Man Hing right next door. The whole door was smashed in. Sad, sad. but looks like they are already open for business....last night I was coming home and saw the OPEN sign. Thats good. But yeah...glass everywhere, that looked awful.

good call, no one saw it , because no one cares anymore. If they did, more than 2000 people would come out and vote during election time. CVS stores, in my opinion, are NOT good neighbors.

I care!!!! Shoooeee...dang...well these people NEED to care. I would have called the cops right away...yeah...how come the CVS people didn't hear? Makes me think, too...where is a neighborhood watch when you need one.
