On January 15, 2020 at approximately 4:12 am, an alert neighbor noticed two suspicious males walking in the unit block of Marcia Ct. in the Blackwood section of town. They contacted police who quickly responded and set up a perimeter. Shortly after, officers located two males walking on Morningstar Ct. and ordered them to stop. The males fled and one juvenile male was apprehended after a foot pursuit through several yards. The other male is believed to be an adult and remains at large. Several vehicle burglaries were found and the juvenile male was charged with each, processed and released to a parent. The investigation is continuing and detectives are using our new Camera Registry to help identify residences with surveillance video. Several videos are being viewed which may have already revealed possible video evidence to help detectives ID the second male. The investigation is continuing.
Residents are reminded to always lock their vehicles and refrain from leaving valuables in the open. Most of the vehicle burglaries reported to Gloucester Township Police are of unlocked vehicles.
If anyone has additional information or knowledge of these burglaries, please contact the Gloucester Township Police Department at 856-228-4500 or call GTPD Anonymous Crime Tip Line: 856-842-5560.
