Police are not sure if the burglars knew they were targeting Joey Torres, the next mayor of Paterson, or whether the Tuesday night heist was just a coincidence.

 
The mayor-elect, who previously served eight years as mayor before he left office in 2010, says the burglars got into his house through a side window and made off with some sentimental items belonging to his wife.
 
Outgoing Mayor Jeffery Jones' home was burglarized in 2001 and his Marine Corps ring was stolen.
