The call came in, with a description, at 5:49 a.m. Wednesday, Police Chief Frank DelVecchio said.
Responding officers found 37-year-old Jerry O. Holquin of Hackensack, who they said first tried to claim he was someone else.

DelVecchio asked that any neighboring jurisdiction or residents who may have been victims of any burglaries of bicycles or GPS devices to contact his department, which has property whose owners haven’t been identified.
