Pair From Wall Charged With Burglary Of Route 34 Business

Bill's Work Clothes burglarized on Tuesday

Two Wall men were arrested and charged following a break-in at a Route 34 retailer, police said.

Vincent Petrucelli, 20, of Shadowbrook Drive and Christopher Hayes, 19, of Sea Girt Ave., were arrested and charged in connection with the Tuesday night burglary of Bill’s Work Clothes, 2369 Route 34, Lt. Walter Pomphrey said.

Police arrived at the clothing retailer around 9:45 p.m. after an alarm at the store had been tripped, alerting authorities. Officers spotted a black pickup truck in the lot and a man fleeing into the woods behind the store. More police arrived, along with a K-9 unit. A search to Ramshorn Drive turned up empty, Pomphrey said.

The rear door to the clothing store had pry marks and other damage, and police turned their attention to the pickup truck, which was registered to Petrucelli’s address on Shadowbrook Drive, Pomphrey said.

Petrucelli and Hayes were arrested and charged with a single count each of third degree burglary, fourth degree possession of buglary tools, fourth degree criminal mischief and fourth degree resisting arrest, Pomphrey said.

Bail was set at $23,000 each. The pair was release after posting bond, Pomphrey said.

How? What can Wall do to prevent kids from taking drugs? Parents need to take more responsibility for their children. I don't look to Wall Twp to solve problems. How much more class time or literature needs to be printed to show kids the dangers of drugs. Read the papers, watch the news, kids are killing each other over BMX bike parts. Why would you blame the school for that?? It's the family and society as a whole that must take responsibility. Value life not property.

Shadow: It is so nice you know Vincent. Also, your comment about who among us is without sin - well the answer is nobody. A better question is who is facing 3-10 years for a felony break-in? I am going to quess nobody once again. Get off your soapbox.

you sound EXTREMELY ignorant and uneducated! Doesn't matter what you know about criminals they committed a crime because they are punk ass little kids. Wannabe thugs trying to break into stores and rob people who are trying to make an HONEST LIVING. Stop defending these degenerate morons! Let them suffer for their lack of judgement and pathetic actions!
