A Bergenfield homeowner interrupted an afternoon burglary, and utility workers helped lead police to two suspects, authorities said this morning.

The Norfolk Street homeowner said a man forced his way through the front door just after 1 o’clock yesterday afternoon and then ran when confronted, Capt. Cathy Madalone said.

Members of a PSE&G crew working in the area saw the suspect run by and get into a car with a getaway driver, she said.

Descriptions were broadcast and Teaneck police stopped a vehicle on Forest Avenue. Witnesses identified the pair as being involved in the break-in, the captain said.

Christopher Thompson, 45, of Bergenfield was charged with burglary and attempted theft, while 53-year-old Richard Allen of Teaneck was charged with complicity.

Both were being held on $70,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
