Evesham police pulled over an elderly Cherry Hill man Tuesday who recalled hitting something—or someone—with his car, just not what, where, or when.
An 81-year-old Cherry Hill resident driving around Camden and Burlington counties hit something—or more likely, someone—Tuesday night, but Evesham police, who pulled him over on East Main Street, don’t know who, what or where. Police said heavy damage to the front passenger’s side of the senior’s blue 1997 Ford Taurus was consistent with that of a vehicle that has struck a pedestrian, including traces of blood and hair. Although the driver said he remembered hitting something earlier in the evening, he couldn’t say what and didn’t know where it would’ve happened. Evesham officers searched the surrounding area but couldn’t find anything resembling a crash scene. Police said the crash could’ve happened anywhere within a one-hour radius of …
Police nabbed a trio of alleged burglars Tuesday morning as commuters watched the incident unfold mere feet from their vehicles.
A reported burglary at the Bishop's View apartment complex led to a rush-hour car stop Tuesday morning that eyewitnesses described as a spectacle. Guns drawn, Cherry Hill police officers pulled over a Volvo SUV on the southbound side of Cuthbert Blvd. near North Park Drive just after 9 a.m., creating a scene drivers couldn't miss as they headed over the bridge toward Route 70. Allie Burger, 32, of Oaklyn, said she initially thought it was a car accident, but then saw “this Volvo SUV sitting there, completely unscathed,” and slowed her vehicle. Traffic stalled around her, as other drivers rubbernecked to get a look at the situation. Just a few feet from her window, Burger saw three police officers “standing or crouching behind a police car…

'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. A steeplechase ensued through two more towns, concluding only when the driver of the getaway car botched a left-hand turn onto …
