A Paterson man charged in several North Jersey burglaries now faces charges in connection with an attempted burglary in Maywood, and authorities in at least two other municipalities expect to file charges within days, police said.

Maywood police charged Corey Porcelli, 27, on Monday with attempted burglary and criminal mischief stemming from an incident last week. Porcelli is accused of trying to break into a house on East Spring Valley Avenue with an accomplice before being chased off by a neighbor, authorities said in a statement.

Porcelli and the accomplice ran to the Bergen Town Center, authorities said. Police compared surveillance video from the mall to Porcelli’s photo from a previous arrest in Wayne, police said. They said they believe Porcelli bought an orange sweatshirt at the Target store at the Bergen Town Center to obscure his identity and escape, adding he was wearing an orange sweatshirt when he was arrested in Wayne.

Police are trying to determine the identity of the accomplice.

Porcelli was being held Tuesday at the Passaic County Jail in Paterson on a combined bail of $725,000 set on four counts of burglary, unlawful handgun possession and criminal mischief out of municipalities including Wayne, Wanaque and West Milford.

Police in Allendale and Jefferson Township said they also expect to file charges within days.

Porcelli is a suspect in a Dec. 28 burglary on Myrtle Avenue in Allendale where jewelry was stolen, said Detective John Mattiace. He said police were able to link a Chevy Cavalier at the scene to Porcelli and to two accomplices who were arrested in Wayne Jan. 3.

“We’re in the process of finishing up the investigation and charges should be filed within days,” Mattiace said.

Jefferson police expect to file charges by Thursday in connection with two burglaries in November and December, said Capt. Eric Wilsusen.

Wayne police arrested Porcelli Friday after an alleged failed break-in on Sheffield Road and a police search that found him hiding in the storage area of a furniture store.

Wayne police Capt. James Clarke said Porcelli was wanted for, or is a suspect in, numerous other burglaries in Wayne, Bloomingdale, Allendale, Ringwood, West Milford, Roxbury, Jefferson, Mount Arlington and Wanaque.

Police from Bloomingdale, Allendale and Ringwood tried to interview Porcelli on Friday to determine whether he was responsible for burglaries in those towns, but the suspect exercised his right against self incrimination and declined to be interviewed, Clarke said. Police from other jurisdictions also viewed property that had been in Porcelli's possession to see if it would match up with missing items from local burglaries, he said.

Clarke said there were warrants out for Porcelli's arrest in other jurisdictions, including Wanaque. West Milford also had issued an arrest warrant for Porcelli in connection with a Jan. 25 burglary. Lt. John Matarese said police additionally were trying to determine if he has been linked to other burglaries in the township.

Ringwood police Sgt. Paul Rothlauf said Porcelli was suspected in at least one burglary in Ringwood on Dewey Drive. Rothlauf said Porcelli broke into the house with Michael Stewart, 41, of Fair Lawn and Shaun Wilkerson, 27, of Paterson, both of whom were arrested and charged this month with burglarizing homes in Wanaque and Ringwood in December.

Stewart and Wilkerson were arrested after a motor vehicle stop in Wayne and police allegedly found them in possession of jewelry, a laptop computer and video game consoles believed to be stolen. At the time, police had said they were looking for one more man they believed was involved.

Wayne police believe Porcelli was involved with Stewart and Wilkerson and are probing whether any others also took part in their crimes, Clarke said.

Mount Arlington police also expect to file charges against Porcelli, and Stewart and Wilkerson, in connection with at least one recent burglary, said borough Sgt. James Distasio.
