Woodbine Troopers Nab Car Burglar After Victim Calls 911

Upper Township, Cape May County - State Troopers from Woodbine Station arrested Robert Brown, Jr., 29, of Ocean View when they found him with evidence of vehicle burglaries late Tuesday night. They were responding to a call from a man who confronted a burglar as he attempted to steal items from the owner’s car. The burglar fled, but the victim provided troopers with a description.

Troopers Mark Wettengel and Ruben Torres soon found Brown behind a parked vehicle on Stagecoach Road, and after a brief foot pursuit, arrested him. Brown was found with a GPS, two MP3 players, and prescription drugs, all believed to be stolen from local vehicles.

He was charged with three counts of burglary, two counts of theft, criminal attempt (theft), eluding by flight, and resisting arrest. He was lodged in Cape May County jail in default of $40,000 full cash bail.

Charges are merely accusations and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
