MEDFORD – A 36-year-old township man was arrested for his role in a rash of vehicle burglaries over a few days last month, police said.

Joseph Sheerer of the 100 block of South Main Street faces several charges after his arrest, which stems from vehicle break-ins that began around Dec. 29. Medford police began investigating a residential break-in as well as the vehicle burglaries at the same time.

They said the suspect stole two vehicles, both of which were recovered a few miles away within the township.

Other stolen items included loose money, laptop computers, tablets and a cellphone. Several vehicles were damaged when the suspect smashed their windows, police said.

Police executed a search warrant for Sheerer’s residence and his vehicle.

He was charged with 12 counts of burglary, 10 counts of theft, three counts of criminal mischief and a single count of credit card theft, and was held in Burlington County Jail pending an initial appearance in Superior Court.
