A warning for people in one New Jersey community after police say they have seen a big jump in the number of burglaries over Rosh Hashanah and other religious holidays.

The police call it the third quadrant of Teaneck, but it's prettier than its name.

Lovely homes on tree lined streets, family homes, and in the area with the burglaries, many of the families are Jewish.

In just a three block area last week during Rosh Hashanah, three homes were burglarized, that's more than happened in all of September last year in the third quadrant.

All of them in broad daylight, brazen burglaries while some neighbors were outside.

Neighbors are worried because there are so many children in the neighborhood.
