Police foil attempted motorcycle theft

Three suspects – an 18-year-old Camden man and two juvenile males – have been charged for their involvement in allegedly stealing two motorcycles during the late night hours of Monday, May 13 at the Rowers of Windsor Apartments, according to the Cherry Hill Police Department.

Shortly before midnight police received a report of two motorcycles being loaded into the back of a Ford pickup truck in the parking lot of the Towers of Windsor Apartments.

Moments later, Sgts. Ryan Johnstone and Robert Froehlich spotted the reported pickup westbound on Chapel Avenue. The Ford pickup pulled onto Cherry Hill Boulevard and police observed the three suspects jump from the moving vehicle and fled on foot.  

Sgt. Chris Hendy apprehended one of the suspects, the Camden man, after a short foot chase. The other two juvenile males were captured after an extensive search of the Cherry Hill Estates neighborhood.

The Ford pickup, which crashed into a telephone pole, was found to be stolen earlier in the day from Gloucester City.  No one was injured as a result of the crash, police said.

Police also recovered the two stolen motorcycles from the Towers of Windsor parking lot. 

Cherry Hill Police Chief Robert Kempf praised the quick response of his patrol officers stating, “I am extremely proud of the work we do on a daily basis. Our officers are aware of the stolen vehicle trends and are fully trained and outfitted to combat these types of crimes.”

The police department encourages anyone witnessing a crime or suspicious activity to call 911 or they can reach police dispatch at (856) 665-1200.
