NC men accused of burglary try at NJ drug store
HILLSIDE, N.J. (AP) - November 24, 2012 (WPVI) -- Two North Carolina men who came to New Jersey to help the state recover from Superstorm Sandy are now accused of trying to rob a drug store.
Hillside police say 28-year-old David Dockery of Morganton and 34-year-old Jerry Lee Williams of Hickory were arrested Thanksgiving night and charged with burglary and criminal mischief.
Officers responding to an alarm around 11:45 p.m. found someone had broken a store window and tried to pry open a lock. The two men were soon found in a cargo van that was traveling on railroad tracks behind the store.
Authorities say Dockery and Williams had been subcontracted by Comcast to perform repairs in areas that were hit by the storm. It wasn't known Saturday if either man had retained an attorney.
