Here’s the full text of the report on the arrest of Dana Labriola (right):
On January 22, 1012, at 4:10 p.m., patrols responded to the CVS located at 510 Prospect Avenue after the store manager recognized a woman from a January 18, 2012 incident where she had exited the store with a basket of cosmetics without paying.
P.O. Salerno determined that the woman identified as Dana Labriola, 30 yoa of Monmouth Beach had shoplifted this evening and made the arrest.
While being searched by P.O. Amanda Arnold, Labriola was found to be in possession of 13 decks of what is believed to be heroin in her bra and purse.
Labriola was charged with shoplifting and possession of a controlled dangerous substance with bail set at $50,000.00 with 10% and was incarcerated at the Monmouth County Correctional Institute for failing to meet the bail requirements.
Police Chief Dan Shaffery tells redbankgreen that a deck of heroin is equal to 15 grams or less.
Apparently, bras are among the preferred hiding places for accused heroin carriers. Here are some result from a Google search:
