Police officials said the Bordentown man has been charged for alleged burglary and theft for the vehicle that was unlawfully entered, and criminal trespass for loitering on a homeowner’s front porch. The man was reported to be in custody on the afternoon of Aug. 21 in Trenton and has been lodged in the Burlington County Jail, according to police.

Prior to the charges issued against the male, police reported that on Aug. 20 at approximately 6:30 a.m,. township police officials said they responded to Bayberry Drive for a report of a suspicious male who had come to a home’s front door and was then observed walking through several yards in the neighborhood.

Police reported that this male was described as Caucasian, approximately six-feet-tall, had a thin build with dark hair and wore black clothing and a red baseball cap. Officers said they checked the area, but were unable to locate the male following the report.

Approximately one hour later, police reported that they took a report from a resident of Bayberry Drive who said their unlocked vehicle had been entered overnight and property located inside the auto was stolen. This unidentified male soon became a person of interest in the auto burglary, and residents were encouraged to reach out to police if they had any more information.

Following the Aug. 21 charges issued against the Bordentown male alleged to be linked to the suspicious person’s report, Bordentown Township Chief of Police Brian Pesce commended the work of his officers and the community for their dual efforts to identify the alleged perpetrator.

“This suspect was identified quickly after being recorded on a resident’s home doorbell camera system, which was immediately shared with our department,” Pesce said. “Several other residents also reported his suspicious behavior that morning, and this is yet another example of the community partnership we have worked hard to build, which keeps our township safe.”
