Yet another Nutley burglary suspect has been arrested, this one for an alleged incident Oct. 9 on Raymond Avenue, Nutley Police Director Alphonse Petracco and Chief Thomas Strumolo said today.

Strumolo said the Nutley Police Department, with the assistance of the United States Marshals, arrested Julio Ponce, 42, of Clifton and charged him with burglary.

“I want to ensure our residents’ safety remains our number one objective,” Petracco said. “Our officers have arrested more than a dozen criminals committing burglaries since implementing special details. The chief and I will continue to supplement patrols as needed to ensure our message is received — if you commit a crime in Nutley we will exert every effort to bring justice.”

Police continue to ask residents to be vigilant by securing vehicles and homes, and to not hesitate to call police to report any suspicious activity.
