January 10, 2022

SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ (MIDDLESEX)–On January 7th at about 9:30 pm, officers responded to Avenue A for a report of a man trying to gain entry to a parked vehicle. The reporting party stated that the man, later identified as Christopher Robinson, 46 years old, from South Brunswick, had pulled up in front of his home, parked blocking his driveway, beeped his horn, and exited his vehicle. Mr. Robinson then walked to the reporting man’s car, which was parked in his driveway, and attempted to enter the car.

When Patrol Officer Bryan Garrison arrived, he located Mr. Robinson still attempting to enter the vehicle. Mr. Robinson made several statements that were rambling and confusing in nature, and would not account for why he was there or why he was trying to enter the vehicle. Mr. Robinson admitted to having consumed alcohol prior to driving to Avenue A.

Patrol Officer First Class Peter Santa placed Mr. Robinson under arrest on suspicion of Attempted Burglary to the motor vehicle and Driving While Under the Influence. On being searched, Mr. Robinson was found to be in possession of 28 Oxycodone tablets. Mr. Robinson was also charged with Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance.

“Mr. Robinson’s actions were erratic, and it was extremely dangerous for him to be operating a motor vehicle in that condition. Luckily, officers were able to arrest him and keep him off the roadways before he hurt someone,” said Chief of Police Raymond J. Hayducka. “We take Driving under the Influence very seriously, and I commend my officers for their actions in keeping the community safe.”

Mr. Robinson was turned over to North Brunswick Police, who had an active warrant for his arrest.
