Early Thursday morning, the Gloucester County SWAT team was called in to assist in the arrest of a Glassboro man who failed to report for sentencing last Friday.
Raheem T. Holland, 33, who had been arrested in August 2012 for burglarizing nine cars in West Deptford, was thought to be staying with an acquaintance in Woodbury.
Acting on a tip, the Fugitive Investigation Unit of the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office tried to serve Holland with a bench warrant at the Morris Street home.
Holland didn't respond to police orders to leave the house at 7:30 a.m., according to a statement from the Prosecutor's Office, which led them to call in the SWAT team.
Authorities had a search warrant granting them the right to enter the home, the statement said. After several hours on location, a tactical team "eventually breached the door of the home, but did not find Holland inside."
By 10:30 a.m., the Prosecutor's Office said, Holland had been found outside the Acme supermarket on Rt. 45 in Woodbury. He was arrested there by Prosecutor's Office officers and members of the Woodbury Police Department.
