June 9, 2023

BORDENTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ (BURLINGTON)–The Bordentown Township Police Department announces the arrest of Christian Stacey, age 18, of Humboldt St. Trenton NJ, and a 17-year-old juvenile from Trenton, NJ in connection with a motor vehicle theft and multiple motor vehicle burglaries in the Tree Street Development thanks to a vigilant resident.

The investigation began on the morning of 6/8/2023 when a resident of Van Drive observed a suspicious person peering into vehicles. This subject then fled on foot upon officers’ arrival. While searching the area, a vehicle reported stolen from Morrisville PA was located by officers occupied by a juvenile male from Trenton NJ. The juvenile was taken into custody, released to a guardian and criminal charges are pending. Multiple unlocked parked vehicles in the area were then determined to have been burglarized and were processed for evidence by Det. Moloney.

A few hours later our department received a report of a vehicle stolen from a Maple Avenue home. This stolen vehicle was then located in Trenton NJ by the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department being operated by Stacey. When Stacey was taken into custody, proceeds from the motor vehicle burglaries were located on his person and in the vehicle. Additional evidence was located linking Stacey to the vehicle burglaries in the Tree Street Development. Stacy was then charged with three counts of burglary, three counts of theft, and theft of a motor vehicle before being transported to Burlington County Jail.

The vehicle burglary investigation was conducted by Ptl. Alexander and Det. Moloney and the vehicle theft investigation was undertaken by Ptl. Sanchez and Sgt. Stahl.

Anyone from the Tree Street Development with relevant security footage is asked to forward it to Det. Moloney at
