Two suspects wanted for burglarizing a Howell home and making away with more than $200,000 worth of jewelry and valuables were found and arrested in Neptune.
The robbery occurred last December when the suspects camped out in the woods behind the Howell home, watched the owners leave, broke in through a locked door and stole over $200,000 in valuables.
The first suspect, Dathan Thompson was located at his residence and arrested without incident. He was charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief.
The second suspect, Karl Roberson, was arrested during a motor vehicle stop in Neptune. He was driving a vehicle that investigation revealed had been connected to the burglary.
Following his arrest, a search warrant was conducted on the vehicle. During the search officers found a defaced 9mm handgun with an extended magazine, several packages of suspected “crack cocaine,” marijuana and items related to the burglary. Roberson was charged with burglary, theft, criminal mischief, possession of controlled dangerous substance and several weapons offenses.
