WAYNE, N.J. -- Thanks to witnesses, Wayne police snagged a pair of snatch-and-grab thieves who fled a local store with nearly two dozen bottles of perfume, authorities said.
Several witnesses to the Bath and Body Works theft at the Preakness Shopping Center snapped cellphone shots of the suspects and the getaway car, a Ford Escape that township police stopped on Alpine Drive, Detective Capt. Laurence Martin said.
Strewn across the back seat was the more than $300 of stolen mist fragrance bottles, along with a crack pipe, he said.
Police arrested the driver, Ciriaco “Kenny” Lombardo, 49, of Totowa and his 50-year-old passenger, Jeffrey Dixon of Paterson and sent both to the Passaic County Jail on receiving stolen property charges.
Lombardo also received summonses for driving with a suspended license and having drug paraphernalia in the car.
