HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Police arrested two teens Wednesday and charged them in a combined 31 car burglaries and thefts.
Officers responded to Club House Lane, near Mays Landing Country Club, after a witness reported seeing two people try to get inside a car at 2:31 a.m.
The suspects ran away when officers arrived, and a police K-9 tracked them, after which they were arrested, police said.
The two were identified as Classy Bordley, 19, of Mays Landing, and a 17-year-old boy, whom officials did not name, also from Mays Landing. Bordley was charged with seven motor vehicle burglaries and thefts, eluding and conspiracy.
The 17-year-old was charged with 24 motor vehicle burglaries and thefts, eluding, conspiracy, tampering with evidence and violating curfew. Police said many of the charges are related to previously reported car robberies.
Bordley was released on a summons, and the juvenile was released to his parents and subject to home electronic monitoring. Additional charges may be forthcoming, police said.
