YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Two heroin addicts who stole a desktop PC were busted by a Wallington police detective after hocking it for $40, authorities said this morning.

The 18-year-old Halston Avenue victim said he told Krzysztof Latocha ( above, left ) and Adam Jaworski ( above, right ), both 22, that he was going on a cruise.

When he got back, the $700 computer was gone, Detective Lt. Shawn Kudlacik said.

Kudlacik contacted Saddle Brook detectives and got an itemized spreadsheet of sales from a popular pawn shop in their town.

“First we brought in Jaworski, then we brought in Latocha,” he told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Latocha, the alleged getaway driver, apparently gave Jaworski a sweatshirt that he told him to turn inside out and directed him to fetch a laptop from the apartment, the lieutenant said.

He came back with the tower instead.

Latocha remained held on $5,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail following his arrest Monday. Jaworski was released on his own recognizance.
