A township resident was charged with the burglary following a two-week investigation by South Brunswick Police.
Kyle Nasdeo, 27, of South Brunswick, was charged with burglary after turning himself in on Friday.
At 4:15 p.m. on Jan 30, a teenage Spruce Lane resident returned home from school and interrupted the burglary in progress, according to police. The suspect immediately fled the home through a rear sliding door after seeing the teen enter, according to police.
Detectives then investigated several leads provided by community members and were able to recover items allegedly stolen from the Spruce Lane home. The investigation led to the charges against Nasdeo for burglary.
He surrendered Friday evening at South Brunswick Police Headquarters.
"Detectives developed information from speaking with dozens of residents," said Chief Raymond Hayducka via release. "That information combined with good police work led to solving this crime."
Nasdeo posted $2,500 bail and was released.
Detective Ron Seaman is leading the ongoing investigation. Police said they believe a second person will be charged in the near future.
