The owner of the Haddon Avenue garden center is furious. He also says he has the perpetrator on camera.
When Andrew Warner came into work Wednesday morning, he was greeted by an ugly scene: broken glass, a mess inside his shop and the awful sensation of wondering what isn't there anymore. An apparent overnight break-in at Warner Landscape and Patio—within two weeks of its spring seasonal opening—had the garden center owner fuming and searching for answers. "I'm trying to take an inventory of everything that's missing, which is more difficult than you think," Warner told Patch. "We noticed all my air tools were missing," he said. "Somebody going through my tools is like somebody going through my underwear drawer: It's personal." Warner reported that his internal security camera captured footage of the person he believes to be responsible for…

Tyrone Williams, 42, formerly of Camden City, was charged in the case.
"The wheels of justice grind slowly but exceedingly fine," as the proverb goes, and last week Collingswood Police proved it true.

On the evening of October 29, 2011, residents in the 100 block of Richey Ave. returned home to discover that their back door had been broken into. Some jewelry and small appliances were discovered to be missing.

'After a healthy foot pursuit and brief, physical struggle,' said police, three out-of-town suspects were collared with $62,000 in cell phones and burglars' tools.
An early morning break-in at the Sprint PCS store in the Ellisburg Circle ended with a spectacular car crash in Collingswood Sept. 16, when some out-of-town thieves lost control of their getaway vehicle in an attempt to elude authorities. A store alarm drew Cherry Hill police to the scene at some point between 3 and 4 a.m. When they arrived on the scene, they observed a trio of men hustling some $62,000 in cell phones into their van. The alleged burglars ignored orders to surrender themselves, and sped off. “They were just finishing up and they bolted out of there,” said Cherry Hill Det. Sgt. Joseph Vitarelli.
