Alert mall officer aids in burglary arrests http://www.privateofficer.com
Township police said they received a call at 7:19 a.m. Thursday from Crystal Brown, a security officer at the Route 1 mall, advising that through security cameras she was watching three people break into the Piercing Pagoda kiosk.
While individual stores are not open for business at that hour, the mall itself is open for use as an exercise venue by so-called “mall walkers,” police said.
Brown told police she had watched on the cameras as the suspects walked around different parts of the mall in what police believe was an effort to blend in with the exercise-seekers.
Lawrence officers, aided by West Windsor officers, quickly secured the mall’s exits. Two of the suspects — Dantay Robinson, 38, of Philadelphia and a 17-year-old male whose name was not released — were detained as they tried to leave by Officers Robert Loveless, Richard Laird, Ronald Buchanan and Thomas Everist, police said.
The final suspect, Jerome Faison, 39, of Philadelphia, was followed on the surveillance cameras by Brown and, after a brief foot chase, was arrested by Sgt. Timothy Drew and Detective Joseph Lech, police said.
Police said the trio had stolen about $470 worth of jewelry from the kiosk.
All three were charged with burglary, theft, and possession of burglary tools, police said, noting that Faison was also charged with resisting arrest and both he and Robinson were charged with employing a juvenile in the commission of a crime.
Lech and Officer Ed Budzinski are continuing the investigation.
