NORTH WILDWOOD—Police believe two Middle Township men charged last week with several area burglaries are responsible for stealing flat screens from North Wildwood residences, Capt. John Stevenson said Monday. 

Charles Caruso, 42, and Darren Rogers, 43, were arrested March 18 and face several burglary charges, as well as unauthorized possession of Department of Defense property. Police say they found two grenades; a smoke grenade and a training grenade, as well as military identification cards during a March 18 raid in Cape May Court House.

Stevenson said that Caruso was first stopped by North Wildwood police during a routine traffic stop March 12. At that time, he presented police with a military identification card. After the March 18 raid, police realized Caruso had presented the officer with a false identification. 

Caruso and Rogers are charged with burglary and theft out of North Wildwood, as well as impersonating a public servant.

Stevenson said that these men were charged with stealing flat-screen televisions out of seasonal residential properties in February. At that time, police had requested information from the public about those burglaries. On Monday, Stevenson said that the department had not received any tips from the public that led to Caruso and Rogers arrests.
