One Arrested, One Still at Large after Home Invasion Ends in NJ Crash
Posted on Feb 12, 2013
Police gave chase to a suspect in an armed robbery, but were only able to apprehend him after he caused a head-on collision in Moorestown on January 27.
Police received a call around 9 p.m., reporting a possible home invasion in Camden County. Bellmawr Police arrived at the residence on Windsor Drive to find that a relative of the homeowner had chased two men off the property. The relative told the officers that one suspect fled on foot and the other drove away from the scene.
Bellmawr Police briefly pursued the suspect’s car, but were forced to discontinue the chase due to unsafe speeds. Police put out a BOLO (Be On The Lookout) alert for the suspect, and less than an hour later, a New Jersey State Trooper spotted the vehicle on I-295.
The trooper followed the vehicle off the highway and radioed for assistance. A second trooper arrived at about 10:30 p.m., and the two officers attempted to stop the vehicle on Mt. Laurel Road near Laurence Drive in Moorestown.
Instead of pulling over, 31-year-old Jordan Hui swerved into the opposing lane and struck another vehicle head-on. Hui was immediately arrested and received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. He was released from the hospital and remains at the Camden County Jail, where he is being held on $50,000 bail.
There was one occupant of the car that Hui struck, and she was taken to a nearby hospital for non-critical injuries.
Hui, a resident of Mt. Laurel, will face charges of eluding police officers and numerous other driving offenses. Police say that the accident is still under investigation and that it is possible Hui could be charged with additional offenses.
Bellmawr Police are still on the lookout for the suspect who fled the crime scene on foot.
