Two men have been arrested for alleged inside job burglaries in Secaucus.

On Jan. 12, at 9:30 p.m., the police arrested a 47-year-old male, Trent Janulis of Secaucus, and a 48-year-old male, Michael Schmidt of Jersey City.

Both face four counts of burglary, four counts of conspiracy to commit burglary, and three counts of theft. Janulis was also charged with criminal attempt to commit burglary, defiant trespassing, possession of a controlled dangerous 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.

Both Janulis and Schmidt were issued their complaint warrants and were subsequently transported to the Hudson County Jail.

The charges stem from an investigation conducted by the Secaucus Police Department in relation to numerous reported burglaries and thefts that occurred at 2 Day Transportation located at 901 Castle Road. According to police, the thefts occurred on Dec. 19, 24, and 25 of 2021, and Jan. 10 of this year.

Janulis was employed at the victim company, allegedly using that to allow himself and Schmidt to gain access. According to Secaucus Police Chief Dennis Miller, the two stole over $200,000 in perfume and laptops.
