Police in Summit took a Newark man into custody and charged him with burglarizing a residence in Summit on Wednesday morning.

According to police, a resident on Webster Avenue reportedly told them that she left her home for a short period and when she returned, she noticed her wallet and laptop missing.

The woman contacted police, and during officer's investigation, they came across a witness who reported seeing a man run away from the scene shortly before officers arrived.

Authorities said a man matching the description -that was given by witnesses- of the suspect was stopped in the 500 block of Springfield Avenue and placed under arrest by police.

Police later identified the suspect as Mr. Anthony Harper, 27, of Newark.

Authorities said they found Harper in possession of both items when they placed him in custody.

The charges lodged against Mr. Harper are mere accusation.

He is considered innocent until proven in a court of law.
