EVESHAM, NJ – DNA evidence found at the scene of a 2019 smash-and-grab robbery at the Route 73 Target has led police to their suspect.

In the late night hours on July 25, 2019, Evesham police officers responded to a burglar alarm at the Target store. At around 2:30 am, police arrived to find the glass front door smashed and surveillance video captured three men robbing over $14,000 worth of electronics from the business.

The scene was processed by detectives, who found DNA evidence on the broken glass door. That evidence was analyzed by a lab, and this week, police had enough evidence to charge Quentin A. Murphy, age 31, of New Castle, Delaware, with burglary, theft, and criminal mischief.

His two accomplices remain unidentified.
