CHERRY HILL A Pennsauken man who allegedly used a screwdriver to threaten a Cherry Hill homeowner during a botched burglary was arrested Tuesday, Cherry Hill police said.
Jon D. Padula, 22, of Willis Avenue, was picked up in Lindenwold on Tuesday on a warrant issued for the May 15 break-in.
Police said they were called that morning to a St. Davids Road residence where the homeowner confronted the burglar as he was leaving the house. During a struggle, the burglar allegedly threatened the homeowner with a screwdriver. Unfazed, the homeowner chased the intruder, who dropped his booty and ran, police said.
Padula was charged with burglary, making terroristic threats, aggravated assault, and related offenses.
