ROSELLE PARK, N.J. (AP) - Police in northern New Jersey say they've plucked some suspects in a string of guitar thefts.
Investigators said Thursday that someone spotted an instrument on eBay that was stolen from a relative in Roselle Park. The seller was a Lakewood business that had two other hot guitars but didn't know they were stolen.
Police used surveillance video from the business to identify an undisclosed number of suspects. Roselle Park police Sgt. Manuel Jimenez says all are male juveniles from New Jersey.
The three guitars were stolen by five masked bandits who beat up two apartment residents before taking the guitars.
They are among several worth more than $11,000 stolen in Roselle Park, Summit and Montclair since November.
