Dover NJ Police Arrest Two Suspects in Burglary Spree

Dover New Jersey Burglary AttorneysLaw enforcement recently arrested two men accused of committing a string of home burglaries and commercial burglaries throughout Dover, New Jersey.

The arrests were made after the Dover Police Department received a report of a break-in at a trailer on West Blackwell Street. Dover cops were sent to the scene, where they encountered the two suspects.

Police officers spoke with one of the suspects, a 22-year-old man. According to authorities, the suspects gave police a fake name. When a Dover police officer inquired about the suspect’s real name, the suspect allegedly ran from cops and tried to flee the scene on foot. He was eventually tracked down and apprehended the suspect along the NJ Transit railway line that is located near West Blackwell Street in Dover, NJ.

During the pursuit, the Dover police officer reportedly suffered a hand injury, while the suspect sustained an ankle injury.

As all of this was happening, Dover NJ police arrested the second suspect, a 19-year-old man who was also at the scene of the burglary.

The owner of the trailer later told law enforcement that he was missing an expensive GoPro camera and two remote helicopters. The stolen items are said to have a value of more than $2,200.

While investigating the burglary and theft, Dover NJ detectives were able to link the first suspect to four other burglaries in Dover. All of the burglaries reportedly involved businesses in the area.

The first suspect has been charged with numerous crimes, including five counts of burglary, three counts of theft of movable property, one count of criminal mischief, one count of resisting arrest, one count of obstruction of the administration of law, and one count of hindering apprehension. The suspect has also been charged with simple possession of marijuana because Dover NJ police allegedly found him carrying a small amount of pot when he was taken into custody.

The second suspect faces criminal charges for two counts of burglary, two counts of theft of movable property, and two counts of conspiracy to commit burglary.

The first suspect apprehended by police was initially sent to the Morris County Correctional Facility on a $50K bail amount, but he was later released on his own recognizance as a result of a physical injury that he reportedly sustained while being chased by law enforcement. Meanwhile, the second suspect secured his release from police custody with a summons to appear in court at a later date.
