One of three men suspected of being responsible for the August 2019 robbery of a Keyport man was arrested on Aug. 11, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni announced.
Telquan Adams, 26, of Neptune Township, was later identified as one of the men who
committed the robbery. He is now facing charges of second degree robbery. If convicted, Adams faces a potential sentence of up to 10 years in state prison, according to a press release from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.
Officers from the Keyport Police Department responded to a residence on Broad Street on Aug. 29, 2019, after receiving a report that a robbery had just occurred.
At the scene, the officers found a 44-year-old Keyport man with minor injuries. The man reported he was attacked by three men after arriving home with a large sum of cash he won at a sports betting establishment at Monmouth Park, Oceanport. The man declined medical attention, according to the press release.
A joint investigation conducted by the prosecutor’s office and Keyport police revealed the resident arrived in Keyport near his home and was attacked by at least three men who stole his money.
Gramiccioni said the investigation remains active and ongoing with additional arrests likely.
He said investigators are still looking for assistance from the public and asked anyone with information to contact Detective Ramon Camacho of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 800-533-7443 or Keyport Detective Kevin Bennett at 732-264-0706.
