Bandits make off with $2.5 million from Far Hills home

20 11 2007

FAR HILLS, N.J. (AP) — Police are looking for at least two men who made off with $2.5 million worth of jewelry, gold coins and other valuable items from a Somerset County house.

Somerset County Prosecutor Wayne Forrest says the burglary happened late Sunday morning.

Two hooded burglars pried open a garage door that leads to an attached garage. They removed the items from a safe in a locked bedroom.

A video surveillance system captured the robbery, and the getaway car: a mid-1990’s maroon Chevrolet Astro van. Prosecutors say the car came up the driveway soon after one of the homeowners left with a “member of the household staff.”

The van stayed on the property for about 15 minutes.
