Atlantic City, NJ, Fugitive Wanted For Multiple Incidents Arrested
A fugitive wanted for his alleged involvement in a shooting from August and multiple incidents from December has been taken off of the streets in Atlantic City.
The Atlantic City Police Department says last Friday, March 31st, an investigation involving their organization, the FBI, Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Galloway Township Police Department, led to the apprehension of 32-year-old Glen Graves of Atlantic City from a home in Galloway Township.
Graves is facing a long list of charges, including:
- 2 counts of aggravated assault
- 2 counts of burglary
- 2 counts of unlawful possession of a weapon
- 2 counts of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose
- Possession of hollow-point ammunition
- Possession of a high-capacity magazine
- Possession of a defaced firearm
- 2 counts of certain persons not to possess a weapon
- Resisting arrest
- Simple assault
On the night of Friday, August 5th, ACPD patrol officers responded to the Brigantine Homes section of Atlantic City for a report of shots fired. Moments later, authorities learned two shooting victims arrived at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center-City Division. An ensuing investigation resulted in charges being filed against Graves.
Then, on the morning of December 27th, police say Graves forced his way into a home in the 800 block of North Virginia Avenue at gunpoint. Once inside, Graves robbed the residents before forcing one of the victims, at gunpoint, to drive him to an ATM to withdraw cash as he sat in the rear seat of the vehicle.
Later that morning, an ACPD officer observed the vehicle used to take that victim to an ATM in the 900 block of Atlantic Avenue.
After the vehicle abruptly parked, Glen Graves exited the rear of the vehicle and began running north on Pennsylvania Avenue as Officer Bell immediately gave chase. As Graves cut across a lot in the 1000 block of Arctic Avenue, Officer Bell observed him discard a handgun. Graves continued running eastbound through the lot, jumped a fence and disappeared out of sight.
Officers in the area were not able to locate Graves, however, they did recover a gun, which they say was defaced, fitted with a high-capacity magazine, and loaded with hollow-point ammunition.
Officers later learned that Graves had entered an apartment building in the first block of North Virginia Avenue. Once in the building, Graves forced his way into an apartment and physically assaulted the occupant where he hid and ultimately escaped apprehension.
Now in custody
Graves was remanded to the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
The public is reminded that charges are accusations and all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
