Additional home invasion charges have been filed against two Rutgers University students, one of whom had previously been arrested and charged in a series of campus-related crimes.
Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey said that Jamil C. Pollard, 21, of Woodbury, and Lloyd M. Terry Jr., 20, of Wrightstown, have been charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary for taking an undisclosed amount of cash and marijuana from a student in Piscataway in December 2014.
Pollard, who is not charged in other cases, was released after posting $50,000 bail. He was arrested on the evening of September 14, 2015 at Rutgers in Camden, where he transferred after attending Rutgers in New Brunswick.
Terry, who previously has been charged, remains in custody at the Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center in North Brunswick and his bail has been raised to $225,000.
Terry was served with the new charges on September 11, 2015.
Police previously said Terry was one of three masked men who stormed into a home on Prosper Street in New Brunswick and robbed five other students of money and marijuana.
Prosecutors identified the other suspects in that incident as former student and football player Tejay Johnson, 23, and Andre Boggs, a 20-year-old defensive back on the football team.
The Rutgers University Police Department said 10 current and former students, including five members of the football team, face charges of robbing and assaulting other students as officials announced they were expanding off-campus security.
New Brunswick Police Director Anthony A. Caputo said the charges latest were filed during an investigation by Detective Drew Weiss of the city police force and Detective Gregory Morris of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
The investigation determined that the two defendants entered a Davidson Hall dorm room on the Busch Campus and took the cash and marijuana. No one was injured.
The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Weiss of the New Brunswick Police Department at (732) 745-5217, or Detective Morris of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-4054.
The charges in this case are merely accusations and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty
