Police allege a Hagaman man pulled off a jewelry heist before hitting a snag in his escape route.
Jeffrey R. Green, 34, of Hagaman Avenue, is facing felony charges after a deputy spotted a suspicious character walking down Miami Avenue dressed in black at 1 a.m. on Oct. 12, according to a release from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s department.
Police allege Green became nervous upon questioning and a search of his backpack yielded burglar tools and jewelry. After searching the area, police found a broken window at the Phoenix Swap Store, where jewelry was stolen, on state Route 30.
Green was charged with third-degree burglary and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and fourth-degree grand larceny, all felonies, possession of burglar’s tools and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
Green was released on parole in April after serving time for a second-degree burglary conviction and now faces an additional parole violation charge, according to police.
He was sent to the Montgomery County Jail without bail.
