Teen Charged With Burglarizing Four Businesses in Middle Township
Middle Township Police had their hands full in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday as they were investigating four businesses that were broken into.
Authorities say they responded to a burglar alarm at the AT&T store on Route 9 in Rio Grande around 3:30 Sunday morning. According to a press release, officers found a rock had been thrown through a glass door but no entry had been made. Officers then found an adjacent business, Rio Nails, also had a rock thrown through a door; about $400 was taken from inside the business. Cops also discovered that two businesses on Route 47 -- Gamestop and Oriental Nails -- were burglarized as well.
Video from the businesses allowed cops to identify and then locate the suspect, 19-year-old Brandon Wilson of Paulsboro, at Motel 6 on Route 47. Wilson was arrested and charged with four counts of Burglary (3rd degree) and one count of theft (4th degree).
A further investigation revealed the car Wilson had was stolen out of Gloucester County; Wilson was also charged with receiving stolen property and lodged in the Cape May County Correctional Facility.
