fair_arrest_picFIRST REPORT: 9:40 a.m. [PHOTO] The man responsible for burglarizing multiple homes, has just been arrested and taken into Police custody, TLS has learned. Robert Lewis Fair from Lakewood, was taken at an apartment complex on Kennedy Blvd. without incident. The suspect is wanted for breaking into many Lakewood homes, including one Forest Avenue home at least eight times – with his latest break-in yesterday. (The break-in was not reported upon request).

As reported last week, Fair had a warrant out for his arrest after he was identified on surveillance cameras, set up by LCSW.

  1. TLS- Just curious, how is it that you can state “The man responsible for burglarizing multiple homes” when all all news media need to say “alleged” ?

  2. Hakoras Hatov from the entire community is due to R.Aaron Kugielski and all of the LCSW volunteer team for their time and great efforts on this matter. Especial thanks to F.L who stayed up night after night to apprehend the elusive perpetrator and to H. who set up the surveillance .Thanks are alsu due to Meir Lichtenstein, Detective Addison and Chief Lawson for their assistance and professional expertise.

  3. # 4 has a point, at this point he should be referred to as alleged burglar. However our complete trust, respect and admiration for the LPD, and LCSW and our desire for this nightmare to end allow us to predetermine the final verdict. But we still should not jump to conclusions and we should refer to the burglar as alleged.

  4. Thank you Hashem for the chesed in helping us apprehend this criminal- can you imagine the people that were burglarized eight times – i was terribly upset for them – alleged? – they have pictures of him – Thank you Shomrim for watching night after night and setting up cameras. Thank you Lakewood Police for all your efforts. And I hope that this man will sit in jail for a long time for terrorizing this family and the whole neighborhood.

  5. we started seeing small things missing. I decided to buy a camera and put it in a corner of the house. and low and behold! the next day he showed up. I forwarded it to the police dept. Thank you all for the good work.

  6. In USA, he’s innocent before being proven guilty – ergo, alleged. Let’s hope the authorities have rock-solid evidence that can legitimately be submitted to the court. But if he wasn’t armed – he’ll probably not get more than 5-10 yrs.

  7. Thanks #4. I was about to make the same point. Also, #8, you have no idea what you’re talking about. The term “alleged” is used because in this country you are “innocent until proven guilty” by a jury of your peers. I don’t know what the Mishnah says about it.

  8. That is only for the court, so he get’s a fair trial. It has nothing to do with the press reporting on it or people talking about it! If the video has him doing it then he did it!

    He did the crime and hopefully he’ll do the time!

    P.S. If you see someone killing someone else do you call the police and say “I, allegedly, saw someone kill a man! I don’t want him to kill, allegedly, again!”

  9. for all those brilliant ppl who are always making fun of lcsw and all the ppl around town who help out, i hope u never need them but they did a great job here!

  10. to #16
    “There are innocent people who are incarcerated until proven guilty, like R’Sholom Rubshkin.”
    no he was proven guilty in a court of law!! tried & convicted
    this person has not gone to court yet so he is “alleged”
