The Atlantic County, New Jersey Prosecutor’s Office continues to achieve guilty pleas.

The latest comes from an Atlantic City man, who has pleaded guilty to kidnapping and firearms charges.

On May 20, 2024, Glen Graves pleaded guilty before New Jersey Superior Court Judge Bernard DeLury, Jr. to:

  • first-degree kidnapping.
  • second-degree possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose.
  • fourth-degree resisting arrest by flight.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office stated that:

Under the terms of his guilty plea, Graves is expected to be sentenced to an aggregate term of 18 years in New Jersey State Prison, subject to an 85% period of parole ineligibility under the No Early Release Act. Upon release from prison, Graves will be subject to intensive parole supervision for a period of five years.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office also shared these details:

“On the morning of December 27, 2022, Graves forcibly entered an apartment in Atlantic City while armed with a handgun. Graves ransacked the apartment and then forced the resident, at gunpoint, to drive to a local bank. While seated in the backseat of the victim's car, Graves forced the victim to withdraw $600.00 from the bank's drive-through ATM. Shortly thereafter, Graves fled from the victim's car after police received a 911 call. Graves fled from the police on foot and discarded a pair of latex gloves and a loaded handgun which had a defaced serial number. Ultimately, law enforcement identified Graves through surveillance video, witness statements, and a positive DNA match from the latex gloves,” said the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office also achieved additional guilty pleas from Graves for unrelated indictments as follows:

  • second-degree aggravated assault.
  • second-degree possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose.
  • second-degree eluding police.

Graves was captured during the spring, 2024, led by joint effort of the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Galloway Township Police Department.

The Atlantic City Police Department and Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office investigated the December, 2022 kidnapping incident.

The shooting incident was investigated by the Atlantic City Police Department … the eluding investigation was handled  by Egg Harbor City Police Department and the Egg Harbor Township Police Department.

Graves was prosecuted by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns, and Narcotics Unit.
