Arrest Made in Convenience Store Robbery

Brick woman, 42, charged in robbery

Police have arrested a township woman and charged her with the robbery of a convenience store last weekend.

Gia Palmieri, 42, is suspected of robbing the Quick Stop Convenience Store on Route 88, just north of Midstreams Road.

The robbery occurred Oct. 6 at about 4 p.m., said Brick Police Detective Jim Burgess.

A female walked in the store wearing a stocking that covered her face and demanded cash from the owner, he said. At the time she was holding what appeared to be a handgun.

Palmieri was arrested Thursday after an investigation, said Burgess. Police now suspect what appeared to be a handgun was actually an Airsoft gun.

Palmieri has been charged with robbery and unlawful possession of an immitation firearm. She was being lodged in the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, a check of jail records showed.

To Thomas what you are saying is right in a way but believe me it is not a one size fits all problem. Gia is a wonderful person who found herself in a very bad situation what she did is unthinkable and all off us who have watched her grow up in a beautiful family are heartboken my whole family is suffering over this I cant even sleep thinking of her in jail she is not your hard hearted criminal please know that she was there for me when my family was hit with a drug addiction to where my husband ab=nd I found ourselves raising two babies Gia was the first to want to lend a helping hand I pray God gets her the help she needs and not the penal system.

It's like a white trash battle on here. Good people don't go and put a stocking on and go rob the convenience store or elsewhere. Everyone has a excuse! I'm hurting from the economy just like everyone else is and I would never go and do something like this. Wake up people! There's cameras EVERYWHERE!
