YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Lyndhurst parolee was wearing a monitoring bracelet when he was arrested following a car burglary, police said.

A witness told officers who responded Saturday night to a call of a panhandler in the 500 block of New York Avenue that the suspect entered an unlocked car parked in a private driveway and took off with a small amount of change, Capt. John Valente told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this morning.

Police found Gabriel Martinez Serrantes, 41, on Ridge Road near the Kingsland Train Station. He was carrying $10 in loose change — and wearing the monitoring bracelet, Valente said.

Brought to headquarters, Serrantes threatened officers during processing, the captain said.

In an ironic twist, Serrantes had a hearing scheduled this week for a Passaic County judge to consider ordering the bracelet removed.

He was being held on $10,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with burglary, resisting arrest, making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct.
