Police arrested one man last week on the border of West Orange and Orange with various electronic equipment on him and marijuana.
Rodney Tyrone Cauthen, 49, of Orange, was charged with theft of property, and drug possession and paraphernalia, according to police reports.
Officers questioned and searched Cauthen because he was “known ... to be responsible for several burglaries in the past,” and there have been recent car burglaries in the area, according to reports.
Police found not only suspected marijuana on Cauthen, but also a DVD player, two navigation units, a digital camera, an iPod, and almost $20 in loose coins.
