Kingwood Station Detectives Solve 13 Burglaries in East Amwell Township and Looking to Solve More
February 27, 2017
Kingwood Station detectives recently solved a string of 13 burglaries, which began in July of 2016, in the John Ringo section of East Amwell Township, Hunterdon County. Cuthbert Anderson, 22, of Lawrenceville, N.J. was charged with burglary and theft offenses by State Police detectives in addition to multiple charges from other jurisdictions.
In early February, the Kingwood Station detective bureau conducted an investigation in cooperation with the detectives from Edgewater Park Police Department (Burlington County) and Burlington Township Police Department for numerous burglaries and thefts. The suspect would brazenly burglarize houses while the homeowners were asleep, usually entering through unlooked doors. Detectives worked together to compile evidence, which led to Anderson’s arrest on Tuesday, February 7. As a result of the investigation, Ander was charged in connection to 13 burglaries and thefts in Hunterdon County and several burglaries and thefts in Burlington County. He was also linked to a pursuit in Hopewell Township, Mercer County involving a stolen vehicle and a burglary/theft in Raritan Township, Hunterdon County. State Police detectives notified both Hopewell and Raritan Township detectives of the investigation, which led to additional charges.
