SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Chief of Police Raymond Hayducka announced Tuesday that after a seven month investigation, detectives have made an arrest in a burglary to a commercial warehouse.
Detectives arrested Miguel Rosario, 25, of Bellmawr, late Monday night and charged him with burglary and criminal mischief, according to a press release.
The burglary to WB Mason warehouse on Commerce Drive was interrupted back on May 23 after the suspect set off an alarm, police said.
Rosario was reportedly captured on video walking in the warehouse wearing gloves, a black sweatshirt, and a black ski mask, according to police.
He had allegedly pried open a bay door to get inside the warehouse and later fled in a box truck after setting off the alarm.
Detectives canvassed the commercial area near New Jersey Turnpike Exit 8A for any digital evidence the suspect may have left behind, police said.
Detective Mike Pellino was able to piece together video from surrounding businesses to identify the type of box truck that the suspect used and traced it to a Philadelphia area address and later to Rosario, police said.
Detectives obtained search warrants which revealed additional physical evidence that placed Rosario at the scene in May and was arrested by Bellmawr Police and turned over to South Brunswick detectives, police said.
His bail was set at $50,000, which he was able to post, police said.
Chief Hayducka credited diligent police work with solving the case.
“This case required persistence and determination in identifying all the evidence and leads. The suspect may have believed he had gotten away, but it was only a matter of time and hard work until we caught up to him,” said Hayducka.
The chief thanked the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office and Bellmawr Police Department for their assistance in the case.
