Police arrested two New Jersey residents after they were allegedly seen fleeing the scene of a burglary on Thursday afternoon, according to a Lower Merion news release.
At 3:14 p.m. Thursday, Lower Merion police responded to the 200 block of Gypsy Lane in Wynnewood on the report of a burglary in progress. A white male was seen fleeing the scene, and police also received information that a white female had been sitting in a maroon Mazda with New Jersey plates near the scene, police said.
Officers located a car matching that description traveling along Montgomery Avenue, at which point the car was stopped. Arrested were Patrick Reiss, 32, of Pensauken, N.J. and Priscilla Dangelatonio, 22, of Mantua, N.J.
According to police, further investigation revealed that Reiss and Dangelatonio also allegedly committed a burglary in the 500 block of Putnam Road in Merion. The two are also suspects in burglaries committed in several jurisdictions of Delaware County, police said.
"The Lower Merion Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police, Aston Police, Upper Providence, and Nether Providence are currently working together to solve a series of burglaries in which both Reiss and Dangelatonio are implicated," the release states.
