DEPTFORD TOWNSHIP - Last-minute Christmas shopping brings out all kinds of people - including fugitives.
Corey Glenn, of Bellmawr, was arrested Christmas Eve outside the Victoria's Secret store at the Deptford Mall after a member of a guns, gangs and narcotics task force from the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office - also apparently doing some shopping at the same store - noticed him around 12:30 p.m.
Glenn, 29, of the 1000 block of West Kings Highway, was taken into custody on three bench warrants for failing to appear for sentencing in Superior Court in Woodbury on November 21 on narcotics and weapons charges.
Glenn was being held without bail in the Gloucester County Jail.
Glenn had been the subject of a three-week fugitive unit investigation into his whereabouts. After the officer reported the sighting, seven or eight other officers approached Glenn, who had been shopping in the women's lingerie store. A brief struggle ensued before Glenn was taken into custody.
Glenn previously pleaded guilty to three separate indictments, charging him with unlawful possession of a weapon in Mantua Township, unlawful possession of a weapon in Cumberland County and possession of methamphetamine in Westville, but he failed to appear in court for sentencing, according to Sgt. Timothy O'Brien, of the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.
