Smith reported some of the car burglaries date back to before Christmas 2013.

“It really wasn’t the level, the value of this equipment exceeded $10,000,” Police Chief Jim Batelli said.

Batelli told WCBS the break in the case came when an officer spotted a car seen in surveillance video of one of the break-ins.

Cops even tracked down buyers on Ebay to recover the stolen GPS devices and radar detectors, Smith reported.

“Buyer beware, the items we identified as being stolen had to be returned to a legitimate owner,” Batelli said.

Lovrich, who works for a luxury car dealership, was allegedly arrested with heroin, Smith reported.
