Darren Clarke, 19, was placed under arrest by police on Sunday for allegedly breaking into a home on Howland Circle and taking jewelry and electronic items, police said. 

Around 4:20 p.m. on Sunday, West Caldwell police officers received a call about the burglary to the Howland Circle home, located on a secluded road off of Passaic Avenue. The burglary occurred sometime during the Thanksgiving Day weekend, police said.
