Sharon Buck came to the Chester Township meeting of the mayor and council on Tuesday to share her praise for the work Cpl. Det. Anthony DaCunza and Det. Brian Gill did on the burglary case involving her home on Reger Road in Chester.
“I am here to compliment Det. Dacunza and Det. Gill. I just wanted to compliment them. They were very prompt in responding,” Buck said. “Two weeks later I understand the people who broke in were found and we’re very happy for that.”
A Pennsylvania pair was charged in connection with the burglary which occurred at the end of October.
Edwin Morales, 28, was charged with burglary, theft, criminal mischief and conspiracy to commit burglary and theft. Mary A. Jennings, 33, was charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and theft.
Morales and Jennings were charged on Oct. 26 in connection with the Oct. 15 alleged burglary of a Reger Road home, according to a statement released Sunday by Lt. Thomas Williver.
The pair was arrested the day before on Oct. 25 for allegedly trying to pay for gas with counterfeit money at an Allamuchy gas station, according to NJ.com.
“The detectives were wonderful in making our case a priority,” Buck said. “They were wonderful and kept us updated. I know people who have experienced crime in other towns and they are treated secondary. That was never the case here.”
