A Carteret man has been charged with a February burglary of a Linden convenience store, police announced this afternoon.
On February 16, 2015 at 2:22 a.m., an alarm was activated at the Quick Buy Food Mart at 1108 W. St. George Avenue.
Responding officers discovered a broken glass door and blood on the floor and counter.
Taken from the store was cash, cigarettes, and cigarillos.
Detectives retrieved video surveillance footage of a suspect and sent the blood to the Union County Crime Laboratory for DNA analysis.
After several months of investigation and working with other law enforcement agencies, Detectives Kenneth Mikolajczyk and Daniel Sadowski obtained probable cause to issue an arrest warrant charging Freeman, 38, of Carteret, with burglary and theft.
He was recently arrested by Old Bridge Twp. police who discovered the Linden warrant, and Freeman was subsequently sent to the Union County Jail pending a future court date.
