A 20-year old Little Silver man is being held at the county jail in lieu of $20,000 bail on charges he burglarized two homes on Little Silver Point Road in Little Silver.
Patrick O'Connell of Winding Way is accused of entering the houses on July 5 without permission and with the purpose to commit an offense. At one house, police allege he entered through the front door, and at another, he gained entry to the enclosed porch area, damaging the door.
The criminal complaint was certified by Little Silver Patrol Officer Amanda Arnold.
He was held on $20,000 bail, no ten percent option, at the Monmouth County Correctional Facility, as set by municipal Judge James E. Berube Jr.
His first appearance before a judge is scheduled for July 10.
An arrest is not a conviction, and every defendant is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
