A 56-year-old Roebling man accused of trying lure two young girls into his vehicle last week has been charged, police announced today.
Brian M. Ayers was charged after police investigated a suspicious incident that occurred in Cherry Hill Township on Wednesday April 6.
At approximately 5:20 p.m., two juvenile females were at the Wawa located at 843 Cooper Landing Road, when they noticed Ayers watching them. They were uncomfortable with his presence and waited for him to leave before making their purchase.
As the females walked in the area of S. Lincoln and Garfield Avenue - approximately one mile from the Wawa - Ayers pulled alongside the curb and offered them a ride home. Both girls ran and told an adult and Ayers drove away.
Anonymous tips led to the identification of Ayers and through continued investigation probable cause was developed to charge Ayers with second degree attempted child luring and third degree child endangerment.
Ayers was arrested without incident and was remanded to the Camden County Jail on $80,000.00 bail.
He has since posted bail and was released.
