Alleged Greenfield Heights Burglary Team Indicted
Dale W. Troughton Jr. and James P. Nelson face charges for an incident on Nov. 10, 2011.
A pair of men West Deptford police say burglarized a Greenfield Heights home in November have been indicted on several charges related to that incident.
Dale W. Troughton Jr., 25, of Deptford, was indicted on a charge of third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, after initially being charged with both conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit to commit theft.
James P. Nelson, 26, of Pitman, was indicted on a single third-degree burglary charge, after also being initially charged with burglary and theft.
Police said both men were involved in the Nov. 10, 2011, burglary on Cambridge Drive, where they allegedly slipped into the home of one of Troughton's acquaintances and stole an Xbox and a Playstation.
They were arrested less than a week later, after West Deptford police found the video game systems at a local used dealer and tracked the thefts back to the two men.
Nelson, who was released on a summons after being arrested by West Deptford police, was also indicted on charges of burglary related to incidents after that first one in West Deptford.
He was indicted on seven counts of burglary, three counts of theft by unlawful taking and a single count of conspiracy to commit burglary for alleged burglaries in Pitman on Nov. 26, 27 and 30 and Dec. 2, 3 and 4, 2011.
An indictment is a formal charge and is not indicative of guilt or innocence.
