Police Arrest Theft Suspect

WOPD pick up man with multiple electronics on him.


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.

"WOPD pick up man with multiple electrons on him." Please fix the typo.

Einstein carrying around those "electrons". Why do they always make the cannabis sound like the major crime? Theft is worse than pot smoking, beer drinking is worse than pot smoking.

i always thought the combination of electrons and canabis to be quite dangerous, its a miracle he did not sponteanously combust!!! maybe it was the absence of protons?
