Barnegat Police Charges Manahawkin Man In Connection With Burglary

The arrest concluded an investigation that began in the summer of 2010.

Barnegat Police recently charged a Manahawkin man in connection with a burglary that occurred on Burr Street two years ago.

Detective William Hetrick charged Robert Guiendon of the Mayetta section of Stafford Township on May 23, based on a fingerprint, which the Barnegat Police took shortly after the burglary and submitted to the FBI.

The burglary of a Burr Street residence occurred on or about July 21, 2010, police said.

"During the 2010 investigation, Hetrick was able to secure a latent fingerprint from a window screen that was removed by the burglar to gain access to the residence," the police report read.

Two years after it was submitted, the FBIs IAFIS fingerprint system matched that print with those of Guiendon.

Guiendon is currently lodged in Northern State Prison.

Wow. Excellent work. Can we get details about why fingerprint took so long?

What difference does it make how long it took to ID the thief? The thief was caught and is now in jail. Betcha he never thought he would be caught either. Stupid is as stupid does.

I have reached out to the Barnegat PD to ask why it took so long, if and when I hear back, I'll be sure to post it here. On another note, I just had to delete a comment. No insults and no rudeness, please. Thank you.

The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine

It says he is in northern state prison. So when he got caught for something else and processed for it his prints finally showed up in the data base. If he never got caught his prints still wouldn't show up. That's what I think took so long.
