A summer burglary in 20 Washington Road resulted in an arrest last week for third-degree burglary and for trespassing.
Andru Brown, 21, of Lawrenceville, N.J., allegedly entered Frick Laboratory on Aug. 5, which was not open to the public and which he was allegedly not licensed or privileged to enter. He allegedly entered with the intent to commit a theft when he was observed at two separate employee desks, according to the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office, allegedly searching through their personal belongings. Brown had in the past also received a persona non grata letter as a notice against trespassing.
Brown voluntarily surrendered to the Department of Public Safety on Sept. 26, following an investigation that identified him as a supect. He is currently free after posting a $15,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 6, the Prosecutor's Office said.
The building is the former location of the Frick Chemistry Laboratory and is currently undergoing extensive renovations to house a number of social sciences programs and the economics department in the near future.
