Riverside Police Explorer Assists in Solving Burglary

On 12/4/15 the Riverside Police Explorers were assisting with the Christmas in Riverside parade.  One alert Explorer
witnessed a disturbance and became aware of a theft.   The Explorer then notified Chief William Eliason who was attending the event.
Tara Conchado, 36 of Sicklerville

Chief Eliason apprehended and detained a female suspect in the area.  Further investigation revealed that the suspect knocked on the door of a house on E. Hancock St. and asked to use the bathroom.  There was a language barrier and without permission the female just walked in and located the bathroom.   She remained in the bathroom for 10 to 15 minutes and left with jewelry and other items.

All items were recovered by police.  The suspect was found to have several warrants and was charged with Burglary, Theft, and Hindering, after it was determined she had also lied to police about her identity.  She was lodged in Burlington County Jail in default of $5,000 bail.

The Riverside Police Explorer Post is an organization affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America.  The Explorers learn and experience different aspects of law enforcement under the supervision and guidance of members of the Riverside Police Department.  Although they have now law enforcement authority, they often augment the Police Department by assisting with community related functions.   The Explorers program is open to youths between the ages of 15 and 21, many of whom have a desire to pursue a career in law enforcement.  The activities of the Explorers include, but are not limited to, training, ride-alongs, and community service.  If you know a young person interested in joining please contact, Ptl. Anthony Cicali acicali@riversidepolicenj.org for more information.
