JERSEY CITY -- An off-duty detective is being credited with catching a thief breaking into a car parked Downtown, authorities said. 

 

Port Authority Police Detective Anthony Cutrone spotted 48-year-old Eric Rourk, of Union City, trying to break into several cars near 16th Street and Jersey Avenue at about 6 a.m. on Friday, spokesman Joe Pentangelo said. 

Cutrone notified police and followed Rourk around the corner, where the 48-year-old used a screwdriver to get inside  2014 black Infinity, Pentangelo said. 

Officers arrived at the scene and arrested Rourk. He was found carrying a pipe with drug residue, two pairs of new women's high heeled shoes, and two bags of new socks, gloves, scarves, and hats, the spokesman said.
