Suspected Pine Lake Park Burglar Arrested
Dominick Frizino allegedly acted alone in the burglary of eight homes in Pine Lake Park
A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with eight burglaries that took place recently in Pine Lake Park, police said.
Dominick Frizino allegedly acted alone in the burglary of eight homes in Pine Lake Park and pawned most of the stolen items at local pawn shops, police said.
Frizino was charged with multiple counts of burglary, theft and criminal mischief, police said.
The Manchester Township police have been investigating eight forced entry burglaries which have occurred in the Pine Lake Park section of the township.
The suspect used a pry tool to force entry through the exterior doors of the residences, including sliding glass doors.
During the investigation, surrounding law enforcement agencies were notified that Frizino was a "person of interest" in the burglaries and were asked to assist in locating him.
On Sunday, Toms River Police Officer Jennifer Jukas located Frizino in the Toms River area.
A subsequent investigation by Detective Adam Emmons and Detective Albert Vega, of the Manchester Township Police Division, led to the arrest of the 26-year-old.
Manchester Police Detectives had been working with surrounding jurisdictions to recover the stolen merchandise from pawn shops so it can be returned to its rightful owners.
After being processed for his arrest, Frizino was transported to Ocean County Jail in default of $90,000.00 bail with no 10 percent option.
