Three Men Arrested In Lacey For Stealing Property At Rella’s Restaurant

Three men were arrested this week after stealing property at Rella’s Restaurant, police said.

On Saturday, February 1, 2014, at 12:31 a.m., Officer Jeffrey Slota was patrolling the parking lot of Rella’s Restaurant, 443 Route 9 South, in Forked River, when he noticed that an unknown person or persons damaged and stole parts from several air conditioning units from the building.

Officer Jeffrey Slota initiated an investigation. On Monday, February 3, 2014, at approximately 10:02 a.m., police were contacted by a caretaker from Rella’s Restaurant who was reporting three suspicious males that were in the rear parking lot of Rella’s Restaurant retrieving items from the woods and placing them into the rear of a pickup truck.

The caller stated that the vehicle left the parking lot, and the caller proceeded to follow the suspect vehicle. Officers located the vehicle in the parking lot of Caffrey’s Restaurant.

Investigation at the scene led to the arrest of three males identified as 19-year-old Casey Sinopoli of Clairmore Avenue in Lanoka Harbor; 19-year-old Eric Anderson of Dolphin Court in Forked River; and 20-year-old Nicholas B. Cicerello of Deguise Street in Lanoka Harbor.

Each was charged with possession of stolen property; specifically, air compressor coils and copper piping valued at approximately $1,800. Nicholas Cicerello and Eric Anderson were processed and served with a criminal summons pending a court date.

Sinopoli was lodged in the Ocean County Correctional Facility with bail set at $10,000. The vehicle they were operating was impounded for possible forfeiture proceedings.

Parents must be sooooo proud
Mama February 05, 2014 at 07:52 PM
All three of them are no-good!!!! Lock them up, let them out and they will do it all over again. If I were Casey's parents, I'd let him sit in there for a very long time, don't pay the bail.

Send these repeat offender punks to the mountains of Pakistan or Afghanistan to build roads and water systems as part of the new CC program. Plane leaves McQuire Airforce base at noon. Parachute included with boarding permit! Conservation Corps not "Job Corps". Tents,picks, and shovels not tv,barbell sets, and music. Outside plumbing and work to eat programs.

wow sinopoli a busy guy....how is he still out?

How do any of you know if his parents "keep bailing him out"? Any prisoner at a county jail has a release date, I assume. I do not believe that people get sentenced to life in prison there. Always the same names here with the comments. On one hand you say blame the parents and on the other - this person is an adult, throw him away forever. Anyone who knows Casey or his family knows that his mom is a wonderful involved parent. They also know that this isn't like him, this is the addict. Thank your pharmaceutical companies for this problem. Thank your doctors for taking kickbacks to give out these Rx's for oxy's for this problem. @Jake2 - you are 100% correct. Get a "rehab" jail of sorts. This is such a money maker for the towns and jails, they want to keep this drug problem going.

Jake your always crying" they need help " this and that blah blah . Well if users want to stay inside and keep their misery to them selfs ,OK help those people.As for the ones out stealing and selling drugs to support their habit . They belong in jail . First offense . 1. Solid year, 2nd Offense 3 years , 3rd offense 7 years . Being a drug addict does not vindicate the scummy things that selfish users are doing.so stop winning about their problems .

@ youpeople, I am sure his mom is a wonderful person... He is not. Just because he presumably has an addiction problem, does not mean he cannot work. There are many functioning alcoholics and addicts in this world. Stealing is the lazy easy way out. You would not be so quick to defend if you worked hard for something and it was stolen from you.

That's what black people do !!! They don't want to work . They get welfare & free cell phones w/ my taxes!! How about a time limit for welfare like 3 yrs & you're off plus give them piss tests before they get their check !!! Welfare isn't a career !!! This country is a joke !! Dirtbags !!!!
youpeoplesuck February 06, 2014 at 12:16 PM
@hardesthit - I have been robbed. Three times. Don't assume things about anyone. I never said anything in defense of his actions, I said he is an addict. If that is a defense, it is a bad one. They need to change the way they're trying to stop this. Like I pointed out - this is a money maker. You keep just throwing them in jail - towns make money. Someone needs to pay for it, so your taxes go up. Plain and simple - make it a "rehab jail". Like @Jake2 said. Send them away for a year to it.
hardesthit February 06, 2014 at 03:40 PM
@ Youpeople Your comment defending him is as follows "They also know that this isn't like him, this is the addict. " Perhaps you missed my main point..... He could work for money to support his addiction. As far as assuming, since you seemed to want to complain about the same old posters here complaining, I did in fact assume that you have not been robbed by some addict lazy scumbag. My mistake. I too have been robbed by a lazy scumbag addict, just recently in fact. Several of my other neighbors were also robbed that night. There is no excuse, good or bad for that type of behavior.

Mama February 07, 2014 at 07:15 AM
Tr- how about we send you to Pakistan just so we don't have to read your comments! Niggalas cage: You sound like a total idiot on The Patch. These addicts do need help. I've read Jake2 comments on other articles and I see where he is coming from. Obviously NC you never had an addict in your family. You are one of the lucky ones!! Don't go criticizing anyone unless you have walked in their shoes...
grace February 07, 2014 at 09:01 AM
me too @ hardesthit..our car...all 3 have been charged etc..1 of them known drug user
hardesthit February 07, 2014 at 09:47 AM
That sucks @Grace, I hope they did not get a lot. The worst part for me was he made a mess in my car, threw everything in my glove boxes all over the inside of the car. As John Travolta said in Pulp Fiction"it would've been worth him doing it if I could've caught him doin it" ..... Or something to that effect!!
People wake up February 09, 2014 at 09:59 AM
All 3 of them are on drugs Birds of a feather flock together!!! Courts should send them all to jail. Enough is Enough !! 1
