According to police, the men were arrested in the area of the Wynewood Drive development as part of that investigation.

Police did not release any further details about what led to the arrest, but put out the following statement in a Nixle alert Thursday afternoon.

“The following is related to yesterday’s Nixle advisories,” the statement said. “We ask our residents to understand that while police are involved in an ongoing investigation and may find the need to alert the community, we will only put out limited information in an effort not to jeopardize the integrity of the investigation.”

Police also did not say if the suspects were jailed or released on a summons.

Two community Nixle alerts were issued Wednesday in an attempt to determine if any homes in the area exhibited any signs of criminal mischief or forced entry.

Anyone with further information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Ryan Dworzanski (609) 395-0031 as the investigation is ongoing, police said.
