FLEMINGTON, NJ – A burglary spree in Hunterdon and Burlington counties that resulted in a 34-count indictment has led Cuthbert A. Andersen Jr., 22, of Lawrence, to plead guilty to “multiple counts of burglary and theft and an eluding charge in Mercer County,” according to a press release issued Thursday by Hunterdon Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III.

Anderson was charged in connection with 13 burglaries and thefts in Hunterdon and several burglaries and thefts in Burlington County, Kearns said. He was also linked to a pursuit in Hopewell Township involving a stolen vehicle and a burglary/theft in Raritan Township, he added.

Cuthbert will appear before the Hon. Judge Angela F. Borkowski for sentencing on Aug. 11.

Kearns said that in early February, State Police based in Kingwood conducted an investigation in cooperation with detectives from his office and police from Edgewater Park (Burlington County), Burlington, Raritan Township and Hopewell Township regarding “numerous burglaries and thefts.”

That led to the indictment in April, Kearns said. Andersen was indicted on 17 counts of third-degree burglary; 11 counts of third-degree theft, second-degree burglary, second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, second-degree eluding, third-degree unlawful possession of a shotgun, third-degree receiving stolen property and fourth-degree illegal sale of weapons.

The spokesman flat-out lied to you when he said all 10,000 customers in Hunterdon would have power restored by Wednesday at 10:30 p.m.
