UPDATE: Bayville Woman Faces Robbery Charges After Incident At Rite-Aid Store

by Patricia A. Miller

Berkeley Township police recently arrested a Bayville woman after a shoplifting incident that resulted in other charges, Police Chief Karin T. DiMichele said.

Patrolmen Patrick Stesner and John Houghkirk responded to the store at 416 Route 9 on a report of a shoplifter, the chief said.

The store manager told police that a female - later identified as Samantha Cannella, 25 - had stolen roughly $100 of merchandise, DiMichele said.

"When confronted, Cannella attempted to escape by pushing the loss prevention officer and store manager into a security device which caused $1,800 worth of damage," the chief said.

Cannella was arrested and charged with robbery and criminal mischief.  Her bail was set at $5,000, with a ten percent option. She was taken to the Ocean County Jail in Toms River, DiMichele said

I have a hard time believing a 25 year old woman could have pushed 2 people so hard to cause $1800 worth of damage. I have found that many of the officers of the Berkeley PD will CREATE or exaggerate offenses when and where they want. In the few experiences I've had with the Berkeley PD I have formed the opinion that the majority aren't bright or intuitive. The majority don't have what it takes to be good cops.
