Police recently arrested a Camden NJ man for allegedly committing a series of burglaries in Haddonfield, New Jersey.
According to law enforcement, the 18-year-old suspect was behind a string of break-ins on November 19. The burglaries occurred at a number of residences and properties located on the 200 block 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 homes that the suspect allegedly entered were unlocked, while most of the other non-residential properties were locked.
Haddonfield police conducted an investigation and used forensic evidence to connect the suspect to the burglaries.
The suspect was subsequently arrested and charged with two counts of burglary and one count of attempted burglary.
If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the burglary charges, he would be subject to severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2, burglary is typically classified as a third degree felony. A conviction for third degree burglary could lead to a sentence of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison.
After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspect was remanded to the Camden County Correctional Facility. He was not eligible for release on bail because he allegedly violated the terms of his probation for a prior offense.
