Police Arrest Two In Connection With Theft Of Wallet At Wawa

The owner of the wallet was on a mission.

He spotted a man and a woman stealing a wallet from his car at 12 p.m. on May  20 at the Wawa on Route 9 in Bayville and phoned police.

"The victim followed the suspects until the arrival of police," Police Chief Karin T. DiMichele said.

Sgt. Ryan Roth and Patrolmen John Schneider and Michael Riccardelli soon encountered Dawn Lagnese, 45, Bayville and James Catapano, 56, Forked River, the chief said.

Further investigation revealed that Lagnese committed the burglary and theft of the vehicle and that Catapano received stolen property from her, DiMichele said.

Both subjects were arrested and taken to police headquarters for processing, the chief said.

Remember folks Bayville is not the safe bucolic place it once was....It is now HEROIN CENTRAL. Lock your car and garage doors and keep the kids inside, there are Heroin houses all over our town and good portion of our population are ok with this .........sorry :(

Good Job guys I have been robbed several times and can't tell how terrible it feels lock up all the Thieves and Junkies. I'm tired of all of it .I also agree with all the drugs around here are out of control. When I moved here years ago I did so to make sure to get my family away from it but like someone mentioned before its every where and it's Sad.Keep doing a Great Job and be Safe.
