(Camden, NJ) – An arrest has been made in the case regarding missing Camden resident, Curtis Jenkins III. Brandon Beverly, 32, from the 1300 block of Shetland Way, Westville, has been charged with the kidnapping and aggravated assault of Jenkins and was remanded to the Camden County Jail earlier today. Jenkins, 20, was reported missing yesterday.
“Based on the information from the investigation thus far, we do not believe this was a random act, but rather a calculated plot to entrap and abduct the victim,” Chief Scott Thomson said. “Investigators continue to diligently search for Jenkins.”
The arrest was facilitated by a partnership of several law enforcement agencies including the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, New Jersey State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Marshals Service.
Jenkins, who remains missing, is described as a black male, 5’11”, 140-160 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair, a short beard, mustache and a crew cut. He was last seen near the 2700 block of Congress Road wearing a white T-shirt and black pants. He is known to frequent Fairview.
This case remains an active and ongoing investigation. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the CCPD tip line at (856) 757-7042 or use the StopIt App to contact the CCPD.
