EDISON, NJ - Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey announced today that a grand jury in Middlesex County indicted two New York men on 142 counts of burglary in nine communities, including Edison, East Brunswick, South Brunswick, Piscataway, Old Bridge, North Brunswick, South Plainfield and Milltown.  

Two other burglaries, which occurred in Livingston, were transferred from Essex County after it was determined the two defendants were responsible

Felix Bruno, 33, and Anthony Goodwine, 50, both of the Bronx, were charged with committing the burglaries between December 12, 2013 and August 18, 2014 and collecting more than $850,000 in cash and jewelry.

Both men are being held at the Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center in North Brunswick in lieu of bail.

The New Brunswick grand jury charged both defendants with counts of conspiracy, theft by unlawful taking, burglary, and resisting arrest on August 19, 2014 while attempting to flee from police before they were apprehended.

Additionally, the panel separately charged Bruno with burglary, theft by deception, two counts of unlawful possession of a .22-caliber handgun and criminal mischief by damaging the properties of two residents while committing burglaries. Goodwine was charged separately with burglary and theft by deception for the four home invasions he committed without his co-defendant.

A total of 65 burglaries were committed by either or both of the defendants

The charges were handed up following a presentation to the grand jury by Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Lorraine Sult.

The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call their local police department, or the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3300.

As is the case with all criminal defendants, Bruno and Goodwine are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
