Jewelry and cash were stolen Friday morning from a Brooklyn Mountain Road home that had its front door pried open, Hopatcong Police said.

Lt. Thomas Kmetz said a woman left her home to go to work at 6:30 a.m. Friday. Two hours later, she returned to find her front door had been pried open, Kmetz said.

An undisclosed amount of jewelry and cash were missing from the bedroom, police said.

Kmetz is asking anyone who may have been driving in the area of Brooklyn Mountain Road near Holiday Drive and seen "a suspicious vehicle or person" to contact Hopatcong Police at 973-398-5000.

Please this is serious this woman was robbed! Let's not blame the police dept or make this about drunk driving!! Let's keep our eyes and ears open and keep watch in our own neighborhoods. If something doesn't seem right call the police or go out and investigate yourself if you feel comfortable enough. We have to help the police by being our own neighborhood watch!! I know all of my neighbors and they know me. If anything is off we check on each other. I know this woman and I feel awful that she was robbed in broad daylight on a busy street and nobody noticed anything!!

Hopatcong needs drones for all the crime that happens weekly - Crime and Drugs = Hopatcong

Grow up BeachBum. There are crime and drugs everywhere not just Hopatcong. Stop acting like it's only a problem that this town faces. If you hate this town so much why are you here?

He / She probably don't live here , but may have at one point .
Emily January 11, 2014 at 06:46 AM
Jessica, it is a problem and this is the town we live in. Why should we move. Maybe we like the town but not the things that are happening here. Running away from the situation is not the answer. Let's all work together to make this a better place to live.

I agree that drugs are in every town. The frustrating part is that we keep seeing the same names OVER and OVER. AND OVER again. Hopefully, someone saw something suspicious the morning of the burglary and calls it in.

Emily no where in my post does it say Emily move out of Hopatcong does it? Nope. It was addressed to BeachBum who puts this town down every chance he gets. Every time we try to do something good for the town he finds the negative. We all know drugs are a problem however I never said they are not. What I said is that they are a problem everywhere and for BeachBum to act like Hopatcong is the only place with drugs and crime is ridiculous. I was the one defended the town and telling the negative voice to shut it. Think about who you defend because I do nothing but good for this community.
Emily January 12, 2014 at 08:24 AM
Jessica, Read your post again. Your right drugs crime are everywhere, but we live in Hopatcong. read my post again. not defending anyone just voiceing my opinion. This is why nothing gets done. nit picking instead of working to make a better place to live.It can be done, but we have to believe and work together.

And thank you Jessica cause I feel like I'm fighting and up hill battle with Beach Bum . I don't like being negative towards people and there past but he has know right to talk . Always I mean always puts Hopatcong down . He isn't man enough to say were he lives. I know but I won't say it cause he is the one putting his foot in his mouth . Thank you again for riding high and standing up for where you live .

Why would anyone complain that these so called victims deserved what happened. A real man or woman does not bully anyone. I love coffee first thing in the morning...you? Hahaha losers
