YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST: A Ridgewood resident chased but lost three men he found carrying pillowcases from his home last night.

All three jumped some bushes at a nearby restaurant and vanished shortly after the Kenilworth Road resident returned home around 10:45 p.m., spotted them and gave chase.

Several Ridgewood police units, along with officers from Glen Rock, Ho-Ho-Kus, Midland Park and Wyckoff, converged on the scene.

A K9 unit from the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office also responded.

All they could find was a pry tool that one of the burglars dropped on a nearby sidewalk.

A neighbor reported seeing a vehicle speed from the same around the same time that the victim called police.

Another neighbor said her home was burglarized recently and wondered whether the same thieves were involved.
