YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Ridgefield minister’s terrified family was held at gunpoint by four men who kicked in a side door and burst into their home last night before making off with jewelry.

“They kept asking where the safe was. But there was none,” Ridgefield Police Capt. Richard Besser told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this morning.

No injuries were reported to the minister, his wife and their two adult daughters in the home invasion, which occurred around 11 o’clock last night in the 400 block of Morse Avenue near Edgewater Avenue, Besser said.

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification processed evidence from the scene.

Meanwhile, Ridgefield detectives were reviewing surveillance video from neighboring homes. They also were trying to determine why the minister would be targeted.
