A Keyport man police say burglarized four Hazlet Township homes in December appeared in Monmouth County Superior Court today, to be formally informed of the charges against him.
Rami Ramada, 23, of 83 St. Peter's Place in Keyport is in county jail. Hazlet Police have charged him with burglary, theft and conspiracy related to the break-ins of four township homes last December. Aberdeen Police have also , related to a string of eight burglaries that began in December in that township, as well as heroin possession and gun possesion.
Ramada worked with a team to break into homes and steal jewelry, said Hazlet Township Police Chief Jim Broderick. "When he was done in Hazlet, he moved on to Aberdeen," said Broderick. On Feb. 6, Aberdeen Police detectives arrrested him at a residence on Harrison Avenue. Jewelry reported stolen by the Hazlet homeowners was found there, which linked him to the burglaries. Both Aberdeen and Hazlet Police charged him on that day.
Ramada faces the following multiple charges of conspiracy, burglary and theft in the forced entry and theft of more than $8,000 worth of goods located on Galway Drive on Dec. 11; Surrey Drive on Dec. 15; and both Sycamore Drive and Belfast Avenue homes on Dec. 24 in the township of Hazlet.
Ramada also faces multiple charges in Aberdeen, where he allegedly stole $28,000 worth of property from homes on Idlewild Lane on Dec. 24; Idaho Lane on Jan. 23; Brookview Lane on Jan. 22, Canfield Lane, Lake Blvd., and Third Street.
On Feb. 18, Aberdeen Police added charges related to the possession of a stolen Glock handgun found in Ramada's residence.
