Note to Suspect: Don't Go to Dunkin' Donuts Next to Cop Station After Alleged Burglary
Haddon Township police say surveillance video from Dunkin' Donuts helped nab suspect.
Put this one down in the brazen category.
Haddon Township police said they arrested a Lindenwold man last week after a surveillance video in a Dunkin' Donuts help identify him as a suspect in a nearby burglary. To make matters worse, the doughnut shop is in a strip mall next to the police station.
"Police were aided in the investigation by surveillance video obtained from the Dunkin' Donuts next to the police department where the suspect went following the burglary," according to a police statement. "The surveillance video showed Joseph M. Kunz in possession of items later determined to have been taken from the victim’s home."
Kunz, 35, of the 100 block of East Park Avenue, Lindenwold, was charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief. He was held at the Camden County jail on $12,500 bail.
He was arrested in Camden on Dec. 7. The burglary, in the 100 block of Virginia Ave., was reported at 6 p.m. on Dec. 5.
"The investigation revealed that Kunz would approach houses that appeared unoccupied," according to a police report. "He would first knock at the front door or ring the doorbell in an attempt to determine if anyone was home. In this particular case, Kunz smashed through the locked front door once he determined that the house was unoccupied. Once inside the home, Kunz ransacked the bedrooms looking for jewelry and other valuables"
