CAMDEN, NJ — A Gloucester Township man, 30, was charged Tuesday for allegedly breaking into four vehicles and disobeying the COVID-19 executive shelter-in-place orders, according to state officials.

Tyriese Reddick was charged with four counts of burglary (third degree) and one count of violating the emergency orders, police said.

"Reddick allegedly broke into four vehicles in a neighborhood in Gloucester Township and took money from them," reads an excerpt from violations announced by Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and Colonel Patrick Callahan this afternoon.

According to the authorities, Reddick was also discovered to have warrants in the city of Camden. 

“One month after Gov. Murphy issued his emergency orders, we are flattening the curve and saving lives, because the vast majority of our residents are conscientiously obeying the social distancing rules and doing their share to fight COVID-19,” said Grewal.

“Unfortunately, there are still those who violate the orders, risking the further spread of this deadly virus. What is worse, there are some who deliberately threaten our brave police officers, medical personnel, and other essential workers, impeding their vital work," he added.
