METUCHEN – The Metuchen Police Department used a little Law & Order humor when it posted the latest police beating on its social media page.

In Metuchen’s “Law & Order,” police arrested a North Carolina man and charged him with breaking and entering at a Johnsdale Avenue home.

On Nov. 25, patrol police were dispatched to Jonesdale Avenue in response to a report that a resident had seen an unknown male in his neighbor’s yard on Nov. 25.

Police were already in the area investigating a similar report on Woodbridge Avenue involving a suspect with a similar description. When patrol arrived at the Johnsdale Avenue residence, they surrounded the home. Officers entered the home through an unsecured back door, police said.

When police entered, the man — later identified as a 43-year-old South Fairmont, North Carolina man — came out the front door, allegedly claiming to be the homeowner.

After some investigation, it was determined that the man was not the owner of the home and had no legitimate reason to be at the residence, police said.

Elsewhere, police said residential surveillance video helped them catch a 42-year-old Edison man and connect him to numerous car thefts in the area.

According to the police, the man was charged with four counts of attempted murder and theft.

On November 16, patrol police made contact with a suspicious male, later identified as an Edison man, who was walking in the area of ​​a recent car theft. After an investigation, detectives were able to connect the man to multiple car thefts in Metuchen.
