A Camden City man, age 21, has been charged with second-degree eluding, third-degree criminal attempt burglary and third-degree possession of stolen property. Police say his current whereabouts are unknown.

Police say the man allegedly attempted to burglarize a home on Justice Drive and is allegedly responsible for multiple car burglaries throughout Evesham Township on Feb. 3.

Specifically, according to police, during the early morning hours of Feb. 3, the man was allegedly observed on a surveillance camera attempting to gain entry into a home in the Ravenscliff Development.

While allegedly in the act of burglarizing a vehicle, police say the man was startled by an Evesham Police officer checking the neighborhood at 3 a.m., resulting in him allegedly fleeing on foot, entering a stolen vehicle and initiating a police pursuit.

According to police, the man quickly crashed his vehicle, fled on foot into the woods and evaded capture.

Police say the man is also wanted for questioning regarding multiple vehicle burglaries throughout Evesham Township. The man has been entered into a National Database as a wanted person.
