With the help of the U.S. Marshals Service and the Fugitive Investigations Unit of the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, a Turnersville man wanted in connection with a burglary and vehicle theft last month was apprehended in Red Hook, Brooklyn last week.
Twenty-eight-year-old Nicholas Martorano of Turnersville was taken into custody without incident, and charged with burglary, motor vehicle theft, and eluding police, according to a statement from the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.
Martorano is alleged to have burglarized a home on Oxford Drive in Washington Township on September 19 and to have stolen a Mazda 3 on October 4 elsewhere in the township.
He was also wanted by police in Jersey City for eluding apprehension, the prosecutor's office claims, and faces additional eluding charges in West Deptford and in Camden City.
Cathleen Martorano, his wife, who was with Nicholas Martorano when he was arrested, was also taken into custody. She faces burglary and larceny charges in New York.
Nicholas Martorano is being held without bail pending his extradition to New Jersey.
