Arrest - Multiple Burglaries

Between the dates of 04/12/2016 – 05/16/2016, the Township of Hamilton Police Department responded to numerous residential burglary reports on Anglesey, Brecknock, Bala, and Denbigh Courts.  Investigation revealed an unknown suspect(s) forced entry into the homes and stole property, including jewelry and electronics.

Recently, Det.

He was charged with six counts of burglary, six counts of theft, and two counts of criminal mischief.

The complaints were placed on a summons, per bail reform and Bonilla was transported back to the Atlantic County Justice Facility where he was being held on unrelated warrants.
