A Gloucester Township police crackdown on suspected car burglars netted six arrests and a seventh warrant for arrest.
Six men and a woman were charged with car burglaries last week after police saturated targeted neighborhoods with patrols.
A Sicklerville man and a Washington Township woman were nabbed first during the police dragenet. Matthew Boccaleri, 25, of Santalina Drive and Tiffani Gattinella, 24, of Wendee Way in the Sewell section of Washington Township were originally arrested on Aug. 20 on drug charges and later connected to a string of auto burglaries in the Mayfair Woods development in Gloucester Township on Aug. 14. Boccaleri was held on burglary and related charges and Santalina was arrested and released with a court date.
In the early-morning hours of the same night, four men were arrested and charged with auto burglary after a resident reported suspicious activity near Breckenridge Drive.
The arrests include: Marlon Morris, 21, of South Myrtle Street, Vineland, Nyzual Streater, 20, of Asburn Avenue, Lindenwold, Malik Wilson, 20, of N. Cuthbert Avenue, Lindenwold, and Sean Hammonds, 19, of Asburn Avenue, Lindenwold. They were all charged with burglary and theft for a string of incidents across several towns, including Deptford, Washington Township and Voorhees.
Police also charged Davon S. Roberts, 20, of 828 Blackwood Clementon Road in Pine Hill, with numerous counts of burglary and thefts and named him an accomplice. He remained at large.
