On January 12 at 9:30 p.m., police arrested a 47-year-old man, Trent Janulis of Secaucus, and a 48-year-old man, Michael Schmidt of Jersey City.
The two face four counts of burglary, four counts of conspiracy to commit burglary and three counts of theft. Janulis was also charged with attempted felony burglary, provocative trespassing, possession of a controlled hazardous substance (CDS) believed to be Suboxone, and possession of a prescription drug believed to be Viagra. Schmidt was also charged with possession of a CDS believed to be Suboxone.

The charges stem from an investigation by the Secaucus Police Department into numerous reported burglaries and robberies that occurred at 2 Day Transportation located at 901 Castle Road. According to police, the robberies took place on December 19, 24 and 25, 2021 and January 10 this year.
