Alleged NJ Burglar Hides Under Bed for 3 Days

The suspect is accused of charging his cellphones in homeowner's spare room.

— -- The man accused of sneaking into a New Jersey home earlier this year proceeded to hide under the bed in a spare room for three days, police say.

Jason Hubbard allegedly entered the home on Ellenel Boulevard in Spotswood, where police said he also charged all four of his cellphones from an electrical outlet he found while under the bed.

Details from the May incident were released Tuesday night.

Hubbard allegedly slipped into the home while the Middlesex County homeowner was taking out the garbage, and remained under the bed undetected for three days until the homeowner heard a sound from the family's spare room, the Spotswood Police Department said in a news release.

The homeowner went to check out the noise and called police immediately upon discovering Hubbard hiding under the bed, officials said.

The police arrived just before 7 p.m. on May 10, and arrested Hubbard for alleged criminal trespassing.

Hubbard was also charged with burglary and theft of services (the electrical current he used to power the cellphones). He was transported to Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Police officials declined to provide any additional information about Hubbard or the status of the case beyond what was in their news release. Public records show that Hubbard is in jail in Middlesex County, but jail officials declined to provide any information.
