Police Nab Alleged Kress Wine Smash-and-Grab Burglar
A suspect was nabbed about two miles away from the alleged burglary.
A Cherry Hill man who police said smashed his way into a liquor store and stole several bottles of booze Friday night was caught not far from the scene after being spotted by officers searching the area.
Justin McNally, of the 1400 block of Hillside Drive, broke out the glass in the front window of Kress Wine on Berlin Road, grabbed a few bottles and took off, according to police, who responded to the store around 11:15 p.m.
He made it about two miles on to Burnt Mill Road, where police officers checking for suspects said they spotted him skulking through the front yards of several homes, dressed in dark clothing and apparently trying to conceal items under his coat.
When officers confronted him, McNally dropped several bottles and ran, police said, but was caught after a brief chase on Hillside Drive.
McNally was charged with burglary, criminal mischief, eluding police and other related charges, and was remanded to the Camden County Jail in lieu of bail.
