Police officials in Medford Township and Franklin Township tell The South Jersey Times that 41-year-old Andrew McCloskey of Monroe Township, and 28-year-old Nichelle Thau of Sicklerville have been charged. McCloskey was arrested at his home Friday, and Thau remains at large.

Police say the pair allegedly sought out their victims in obituaries, looked up the addresses of the deceased, and timed the burglaries to the funerals.

It is not clear if either has retained an attorney.

Both are accused of two burglaries in Medford Township, Burlington County, and McCloskey is charged with one in Franklin Township.

Bail has been set at over $200,000 each.
