Haddon Township NJ police recently nabbed the suspect in a 2013 burglary after getting a fingerprint match.
The burglary occurred in September 2013. According to law enforcement, the suspect unlawfully entered a home on the 200 block of Nicholson Road in Haddon, NJ.
The residents of the home were not present when the burglary was committed.
Haddon Township police detectives conducted an investigation into the then incident and determined that the offender likely accessed the home by forcing open a door. The suspect allegedly stole several items from the residence and then fled the area.
For almost three years, Haddon Township NJ investigators could not figure out who committed the burglary. However, detectives recently caught a break in the investigation when a fingerprint “match” turned up on a New Jersey police database.
The suspect is a 36-year-old male who resides in North Wildwood, New Jersey. He was arrested in North Wildwood and then taken to Haddon Township for processing.
The suspect has been charged with one count of burglary. He already faced several other burglary charges in connection with other break-in incidents committed in the area over the past three years.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the suspect was taken to the Camden County Correctional Facility in Camden, New Jersey. He was being held at the jail on a $72,500 bail amount, which could soon be increased because the suspect was allegedly a wanted fugitive at the time of his arrest.
