He was released on a summons.
Grand juries also indicted:
- Christopher Boardingham, 20, of Forked River on burglary, theft and dealing in stolen property charges.
Boardingham broke into a home on his street between May 23 and 26, stole jewelry and cash in excess of $500 and then sold it within Berkeley Township, police said.
He posted $10,000 bail Feb. 4.
- Michael T. Bartley, 21, of Bayville, Jennifer Braccini, 25, of Ocean, and Heather Ercolano, 40, of Toms River on drug possession charges.
The trio were arrested Oct. 6 in Jackson and accused of possessing heroin.
Bartley also was charged with theft for allegedly stealing a 2010 Chevrolet from Enterprise Rent-a-Car in Bayville, the indictment states.
Bartley is free on $10,000 bail, Ercolano was released on a summons, and Braccini was released on her recognizance.
