A home burglary suspect is in custody this morning after being apprehended by Lakewood police.

Police located several proceeds on his person.

He was transported to Lakewood Police headquarters for booking.

  1. Good cameras caught the robber. Pulling up a gun could have ended in the death of the robber or possibly the homeowner. Lesson: Don’t be quick to pull the trigger, but make sure to install a good security system so you could rely on your Hishtadlus and on Shomer Yisroel.

  2. The police should check out if his bike was really his.
    It could be impounded, being that it was used in conjunction with the crime.

  3. seams like a waste of PD time for so many and so many PD cars for 1 person that did NOT fight or try to get away from the ONE officer, all the others could be out on other needs.
