As CBS 2’s John Slattery reported, at least two of the break-ins happened while residents were home asleep.

“It scares me,” said Brigitte Koller, a burglary victim who lives on Center Avenue. “It scares the hell out of me.”

Koller’s home was buglarized Friday night or early Saturday morning.

“We don’t know it it happened during the time we were out for dinner or later when we were actually home,” she said.

HACKENSACK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The plan for Bergen County, New Jersey to obtain two military-style vehicles has been put on hold, with two emotional sides taking stands on the controversial issue.

As CBS 2’s John Slattery reported, Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino would like to have the two mine-resistant, ambush-protected armored vehicles.

The sheriff has also agreed to a delay while the issue is reviewed.
