SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – A wanted burglary suspect, arrested this week, allegedly told police he was upset that a police alert saying his alleged crimes were done in concert with two other burglary suspects.

Police took Jarred Robinson, 23, of Franklin, into custody this week and charged him in connection with several burglaries during the summer.

The arrest took place as he walked along Route 27 near Society Hill after a resident recognized him from alerts put out by police regarding his alleged crimes, police said Wednesday.

Robinson was connected to a burglary spree involving 48 vehicles along the Route 27 corridor since mid-August after police recovered a stolen vehicle on Springdale Road Sept. 21, police said.

Police interrupted him while allegedly breaking into vehicles at the Royal Oaks Apartments on Route 1.

Robinson fled the scene, but reportedly left a bag containing electronics, clothing and cash that had been reported stolen from vehicles the prior week, police said.

According to police, Robinson was upset about the alert and the fact that he was connected in that alert with two other burglary suspects, Jermaine Robinson Jr., 21, of New Brunswick and Jerome Thomas, 19, of Somerset, who were taken into custody during the last several weeks.

Police said that Robinson allegedly owned up to his own alleged crimes, but told detectives that they were not related to the other two men, and that he did them on his own.

Robinson was lodged in the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center in North Brunswick in lieu of $30,000 bail, police said.
