WAYNE, N.J. – A Wayne man wanted for a local burglary was in court for another matter when township police recognized and arrested him.
Detective Jorge Barreto obtained an arrest warrant after tying 31-year-old Frank J. Schumacher Jr. to the Jan. 29 break-in on Lindy Road, Capt. Laurence Martin said.
A resident who called police after finding Schumacher in the home reported two Canon cameras worth $3,500 stolen, Martin said.
Barreto soon discovered that Schumacher pawned them at a Route 23 shop, the captain said.
Schumacher was sent to the Passaic County Jail pending a bail hearing on charges of burglary and theft.
