A group of Mahwah police officers quickly converged on a neighborhood during a string of burglaries and captured a Rockland County man.

Jorge Lopez, 18, of Spring Valley lost his Nike slides breaking into a home and stole a pair of footwear to try and make his getaway, Police Chief Stephen Jaffe said.

He was riding away on a stolen bicycle when township officers grabbed Lopez and found him carrying stolen jewelry and other items, the chief said.

Responding to several 911 calls, Officers Michael Cleary, Joe Alvarez, Martin Kilroy, Timothy Letavish, Chris Lupo, John Rodriguez and Sgt. Stacy Conley all rushed to Johnson Avenue in the west section of town and immediately established a perimeter, Jaffe said.

Residents said a DPW worker spotted Lopez, who’d ducked into a backyard when he saw police.

Lopez moments earlier had broken into a number of cars, as well as a nearby home, climbing in through the bathroom window off a second floor deck, Jaffe said.

The homeowner found a half-empty soda can on her bedroom dresser and pair of Nike slides – one in the bathroom and one that apparently fell on the deck when he climbed through the window, the chief said.

The house had been ransacked, he said, adding that Lopez had snatched a pair of shoes after losing his slides.

Police charged Lopez with burglary, theft and criminal mischief, as well as having a small amount of pot and drug paraphernalia.

They released him pending an Aug. 14 Municipal Court hearing.

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification collected evidence.

Road collapse strands 400 in Manassas Park neighborhood

The collapse of a stretch of a small road in Manassas Park, Virginia, has led to the stranding of approximately 400 residents.

Nobody was injured, but a vehicle was swept away when heavy rains caused an aging steel culvert running across Moseby Drive to fail. A vehicle that was parked on the road was washed 70 feet downstream.

At about 4:30 a.m., a Manassas Park police officer noticed flooding and a tree across the roadway. When he got closer, he noticed the road had been washed away.

Moseby Drive is the only way in and out of Moseby Court, where the subdivision is located.

“The residents are currently trapped in that neighborhood,” said Capt. Frank Winston of the Manassas Park Police Department. “There are 80 town houses and 16 condominiums.”

Winston said it appears all city services are intact: “Sewer, water, they still have power over there. They still are able to live somewhat of a normal life. They just cannot get out of the community themselves.”

Manassas Park City Manager Laszlo Palko said his city is working with the City of Manassas to provide an alternate way out for stranded neighbors through the rear of the community.

“We hope to have that open to them by this evening,“ Palko said. “We had to do some clearing there but we hope by this evening they will have that ability to utilize that road.”
