Trevor Jonathan King, 18, is charged with burglarizing a Subway in Somerset Borough.

Somerset Borough police arrested a man for allegedly stealing a safe from the Plank Road Subway restaurant.

Trevor Jonathan King, 18, of Markleton, turned himself in Tuesday after learning he was investigators' top suspect, according to police.

King allegedly smashed in the drive-through window at the restaurant early Monday and stole the safe and about $1,000.

Police shared security camera footage from the burglary with news outlets and on social media.

They credit the public and residents at an apartment complex near the restaurant for helping to identify King.

He is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft and receiving stolen property.

He was arraigned and sent to Somerset County Jail on $20,000 bond.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
