Delaware man breaks window of Lakehurst business for no reason, police say
In the middle of the night, things are usually pretty quiet.
There was something that broke the silence and a window though one night in Lakehurst and there was no apparent rhyme or reason for it.
Lakehurst Police Chief Matthew Kline said in a statement that two of his officers were conducting nightly business checks during their shift along Route 70 when they saw someone acting suspiciously behind the new "Beacon of Life" building.
They then noticed that the rear glass door of the building was shattered.
The suspicious person they saw at the scene was still hanging around, appearing to police to be intoxicated and told officers he was the one responsible for the window being broken having thrown a cinder block through the glass door "for no apparent reason."
With that knowledge and admission in hand, police arrested 24-year old Patrick Kimbel of Wilmington, Delaware charging him with 3rd degree criminal mischief without incident.
Kimbel was processed at police headquarters and then releases with a summons pending a mandatory court appearance.
