Police have identified the man at the center of a police and SWAT response in Woodbury, New Jersey on Thursday.

That man, 33-year-old Raheem Holland, was being sought at an acquaintance's house in the 400 block of Morris Street.

Police arrived at the home around 7:30 a.m. and verbally ordered Holland to come out.

When Holland failed to appear, officers called for the SWAT team.

Officers made entry to the home a few hours later and discovered Holland wasn't there.

However he was found, and arrested, a short time later at a nearby Acme store.

Police say Holland was wanted for failure to appear in court on burglary charges.
