LYNDHURST, N.J. -- A Lyndhurst man who doesn't have a car or a driver's license was carrying a GPS device in one hand and a cordless razor in the other when police stopped him and another man following a pair of vehicle burglaries, authorities said.

Christopher Sippel, 59, who was "known to police" was stopped along with 40-year-old Michael Burke in the 500 block of Valley Brook Avenue around 10:40 p.m. Thursday, Police Capt. John Valente told Daily Voice.

Residents had given officers descriptions of both men and what they were wearing, he said.

Burke was carrying earbuds, two iPods and mixed change, Valente said.

Both vehicles belong to a local business and didn't have their doors unlocked, the captain said.

Sippel and Burke were being held on $15,000 bail each in the Bergen County Jail, charged with two counts of burglary and one of theft.
