SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – Township police have charged two men and are seeking a third in connection with a string of car burglaries in Kendall Park and Kingston.

Some 48 car burglaries during that time were linked to the suspects, police said.

Detectives were able to link physical evidence and video surveillance to the suspects during the investigation, police said.

The two apprehended suspects were taken into custody with the assistance of the Franklin, New Brunswick and North Brunswick police departments.

They are both lodged at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center in North Brunswick, police said.

The third man, Robinson, remains a fugitive, and was connected to the case 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 on Thursday, Sept. 24.

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.

Robinson is described as a black male, five-feet, five-inches tall and weighing about 135 pounds.

Police are continuing the investigation and anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Detective Dennis Yuhasz or Detective Michael Pellino at (732) 329-4000, extension 7441.
