Possession of Stolen Property

On Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 3:21pm Absecon patrol units took a report of a burglary at Holy Spirit High School to the concession stand and into the garage-storage area. The accused caused damage to the concession stand and other parts of the building. The accused proceeded to steal two golf carts and battery chargers belonging to the school.

The investigation revealed one of the golf carts was for sale on Craigslist. Contact was made with the seller and arrangements were made for a fake purchase of the golf cart. Jahill L. Barley, 25 of Pleasantville, was taken into custody without incident by Absecon patrol assisted by the Pleasantville Street Crimes Unit. Mr. Barley was charged with Receiving Stolen Property and was released on a summons. The golf cart was confiscated and later returned to Holy Spirit High School.

Through further investigation it was learned that the second golf cart had already been sold on Monday, December 2, 2019. The buyer was identified, contacted, and on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 the buyer returned the golf cart and battery charger that he had purchased from Mr. Barley.
