Authorities have charged a Mullica Hill man with stealing liquor and cash from a VFW post.
Franklin Township Police responded to VFW Post 2071 on Delsea Drive last Friday for a report of a burglary.
The burglar pried open a rear door to enter the establishment and ransacked the bar area, breaking open several game machines and an ATM to steal cash, police said. In addition to money, a large amount of liquor was stolen.
Police identified Troy D. Wyatt, 41, as their suspect. He was a customer in the bar earlier that day and returned after closing to burglarize the place, police said.
He was charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Officers caught up with Wyatt on Wednesday morning when Elk Township Police responded to a report of a suspicious man in the area of Whig Lane and Aura roads. Wyatt was nabbed and turned over to Franklin police on the warrant.
