A Monmouth County Grand Jury said Wednesday that Robert S. Suliga should stand trial for allegedly stealing football equipment from St. John Vianney High School in Holmdel on Oct. 7, 2011. (Read the story on Holmdel Patch.)
The county prosecutor has been charged Suliga with burglary and theft of movable property for entering St. John Vianney without permission and taking school football equipment valued at more than $500.
He is also charged with receiving stolen property worth more than $500 that police say he knew came from either Middletown North, Holmdel High School, or Raritan High School in Hazlet.
These are third degree crimes, and if convicted, Suliga could face a fine of up to $15,000 and a term of imprisonment of up to 3-5 years, or both.
In November 2010, Suliga was arrested and charged with theft for entering Holmdel High School boys locker room and stealing football equipment and uniforms. He was indicted on nine charges. The incident prompted school officials and police to enforce a card pass reader system at the school, and to close off access to the facility after-hours.
