Camden County Prosecutor reports arrest of Sicklerville man, 18, and three juveniles
Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Gloucester Township Police Chief Harry Earle reported four more suspects have been arrested and charged in connection with a home-invasion robbery in Sicklerville.
An 18-year-old Sicklerville male, as well as three juveniles from Clayton — two 15-year-old males and a 16-year-old male — have been arrested in connection to the Sicklerville home invasion that occurred at approximately 11:39 p.m. on Sunday, May 21.
Detectives previously arrested a 21-year-old Clayton male on Monday, May 22, after he and the other four suspects allegedly broke into a residence in the Kay Lane area late the night before.
All five defendants are being charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery, second-degree burglary, second-degree theft, third-degree aggravated assault and third-degree endangering a child.
The 18-year-old and 21-year-old are each being charged with two additional crimes — third-degree unlawful possession of a rifle or shotgun and second-degree possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes.
The 18-year-old and 21-year-old were transported to Camden County jail pending the pretrial detention hearing in accordance with the New Jersey Bail Reform. Under the recent Criminal Justice Reform rules, the court may order the 18-year-old and 21-year-old be detained without bail or released with conditions. Pretrial detention hearings were scheduled for Tuesday, June 6, before Superior Court Judge Richard Wells.
The three juveniles were transported to Camden County Juvenile Center.
All persons charged with crimes are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
