Egg Harbor Township burglary

Police say this man stole marijuana plants from the Compassionate Care Foundation in Egg Harbor Township.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Police are looking for a man they say stole marijuana plants last month from the Compassionate Care Foundation on Century Drive.

At 3:27 a.m. Dec. 18, officers arrived at the foundation — which grows and distributes medical marijuana in accordance with state law — in reference to an activated burglar alarm, police said.

Officers determined the business had been burglarized, having found one of the exterior doors forced open, police said.

Video surveillance shows a man between 6 feet and 6 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing 145 to 165 pounds, police said.

The accused was wearing a dark-colored, hooded sweatshirt with white zipper and a white string through the hood, as well as dark pants, shoes and gloves, police said.

No one at Compassionate Care Foundation answered calls for comment Thursday.

Anyone who can identify the suspect can call police at 609-926-4051 or contact Atlantic County Crime Stoppers at 609-652-1234, 800-658-8477 or
