Police recently apprehended a Camden New Jersey man who allegedly burglarized a number of properties in Haddonfield, NJ.
According to authorities, the 18-year-old suspect was responsible for a series of break-ins during the late-night hours on November 19. The burglaries occurred at residences and other properties located on the 200 and 300 blocks of Rhoads Avenue, the 200 block of Hawthorne Avenue, the 600 block of Maple Avenue, and the 400 block of Beechwood Avenue.
Many of the houses that the suspect allegedly broke into were unlocked, while many of the non-residential properties that the suspect allegedly entered were locked.
Haddonfield NJ police investigated the break-ins and were able to use forensic evidence to link the suspect to the burglaries.
The suspect was later placed under arrest and charged with two counts of burglary, as well as one count of attempted burglary.
If the suspect is eventually convicted of burglary, he would face significant penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2, burglary is usually classified as a third degree crime. A conviction on third degree burglary charges could result in a sentence of 3-5 years in New Jersey State Prison.
After being arrested and charged, the suspect was taken to the Camden County Correctional Facility. He was ineligible for release on bail because he allegedly violated his probation for a prior criminal offense.
