TV Shoplifters Had Heroin in Car, Police Say

Long Valley woman among four charged with multiple crimes.

Four Morris County residents were arrested for possession of heroin and shoplifting from the Mt. Olive Walmart store, Officer Michael Russell said.

Jamie Borelli, 30, of Long Valley, Joseph Masino, 40, of Netcong, Lawrence Hill III, 46, of Landing, and Heather Hill, 42, of Landing, were all charged with third-degree conspiracy, third-degree shoplifting, possession of heroin, possession of a hypodermic needle and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mt. Olive Police stopped a vehicle on Route 206 after receiving a report of stolen goods from the department store with a description of a pick up truck that had left the scene, Russell said.

When Officer Anthony Gardner approached the vehicle, he observed two flat screen televisions in the rear bed of the truck, consistent with the description of stolen goods from the store, Russell said.

During an investigation, Russell also found heroin and drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle, Russell said. All four of the vehicles occupants were arrested. Masino, Hill III, and Borelli were lodged in the Morris County Correctional Facility on $20,000 bail with a 10-percent option. Hill was released on her own recognizance.
