Criminal Charges for Pirate’s Den Burglar
In the early morning hours of October 22, 2019, a subject unlawfully entered the Pirate’s Den Restaurant and committed a theft while the establishment was closed.
Members of the Patrol Division were later notified by the Pirate’s Den staff once the burglary was discovered.
Patrol officers called Det. Ferris to the scene where he collected both physical evidence and video surveillance for processing.
After an investigation that lasted just under two weeks, Det. Ferris issued charges for burglary, theft, and criminal mischief for George Dean, Jr., a 31 year old male from Port Republic.
Dean was served his charges at the Atlantic County Justice Facility, where he is currently being held on charges from other jurisdictions.
These charges are merely an accusation and not proof of guilt. In all criminal cases a charged defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty
