A man with one arm was charged in the burglary of a mobile home in Moonachie, authorities said.
On Sunday, police received a report from a resident at the East Fourth Street in the Vanguard Mobile Home Park that a one-armed man was spotted climb through the window of one of the mobile homes, Moonachie Chief Richard Behrens said.
