A Jersey City man has been charged in connection with a burglary at a Secaucus business earlier this month, Capt. Dennis Miller of the Secaucus Police Department said. 

About $10,000 and a loaded .380 caliber handgun were taken in the burglary at Goodfellas deli on County Avenue Sept. 16, police said. Detectives canvassing the neighborhood and examining evidence at the scene identified a suspect, George Waddleton, 49. 

Waddleton was arrested Wednesday at home in Jersey City with assistance from Jersey City police, Miller said. 

Miller also said a search of Waddleton’s vehicle turned up synthetic drugs, hypodermic needles and burglary tools that may have been used in the Goodfellas break-in.  

He has been charged with burglary, theft of movable property, possession of a weapon while prohibited, possession of burglary tools, possession of a synthetic cannabinoid and possession of hypodermic needles.
