A resident of Tent City was caught red handed leaving a school he’d just burglarized, Police Chief Rob Lawson tells TLS. At about 6:50 PM on July 21, police dispatched officers to the elementary school after receiving a burglar alarm coming from the school.
Officer Kevin Sunath was the first to arrive to the school and began walking around the premises, Chief Lawson says.
As the officer made his way around the building, he witnessed a man walking away from a window of the building, holding a shopping bag.
The officer ordered him stop, and he was taken into custody. The bag contained a cordless drill.
Police charged the 28 year old man with burglary and tresspassing. His bail was set at $15,000 and is being held in the Ocean County Jail. TLS.
