TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Trenton police say a man told them he broke into a city business because he wanted to see his brother in jail.
The robbery was discovered around 4:20 a.m. Saturday. Authorities say the business' glass front door had been smashed.
Officers soon found 24-year-old Jose Ixcolin about a block away. They say he was holding a computer monitor taken in the burglary.
Ixcolin allegedly told officers he wanted to get arrested so he could see his brother. It wasn't immediately clear why his brother was in jail or if Ixcolin had been able to speak with him following his arrest.
Ixcolin now faces burglary and theft charges. It wasn't known Monday if he has retained an attorney.
