MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A Morris County man has been charged after he allegedly broke into a Flanders home in February.

Edwin J. Burgos, 34, of Morristown was charged with burglary, theft of movable property, and criminal mischief.

On February 13, at 09:27 a.m., Burgos kicked in the rear door of a residence on Route 206 and removed property from the residence. The incident was caught on a surveillance camera belonging to the home owner, police said.

The Mount Olive Twp. investigations division investigated the incident and developed Burgos as the suspect. He remained at large despite multiple attempts made by the investigations division to locate him, police said.

Burgos was arrested on April, 14 by troopers from the New Jersey State Police Totowa barracks on an unrelated no bail warrant out of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office. Burgos was lodged in the Morris County Correctional Facility, and Mount Olive police were notified of his arrest, police said.

A Mount Olive detective responded to the Correctional Facility, and placed Burgos under arrest for the Mount Olive incident. He will remain lodged in the Morris County Correctional Facility pending a court hearing, police said.
