PERTH AMBOY – Police arrested an 18-year-old Edison man who allegedly tried to break into a New Brunswick Avenue business on Saturday, Nov. 17.
Trayvon Harper was charged with criminal attempted burglary and possession of burglary tools. Judge George M. Boyd set bail at $20,000 with no 10 percent option.
At 9:25 a.m., Perth Amboy Police Officer Joseph Holland responded to a transmission from Auxiliary Officers Jacqueline Rivera and Dominick Skibniewski that they were detaining a suspect who had allegedly just attempted to gain entry at 191 New Brunswick Avenue using a pry bar. A witness flagged down the auxiliary police officers who in turn radioed for assistance.
The charges against Harper are merely accusations; he is presumed innocent unless and until he is proven guilty.
