Two men from Ocean County accused of robbing at least six businesses throughout New Jersey have been arrested, Manchester police announced on Monday.
Police say 34-year-old Ryan Dautorio, of Jackson, and 36-year-old Damian Sanchirico, of Brick, stole from businesses in Manchester, Lakewood and Toms River. Pizza and Panini in Toms River and All-Star Bagels in Manchester were robbed nearly a month ago. Police say Dautorio and Sanchirico are behind those break-ins as well.
Authorities say they captured the suspects shortly after they committed another commercial burglary at Lakewood Industrial Park on May 11. They say the stolen property from the Lakewood theft, valued at over $20,000, was fully recovered.
Sanchirico was apprehended on May 11, but Dautorio evaded capture until Wednesday, May 15. Police say a search warrant was then executed at a Jackson residence that was linked to Dautorio, leading to the discovery of additional incriminating evidence.
Authorities say further investigation confirmed Dautorio and Sanchirico’s involvement in several other burglaries in Toms River, including:
  • NY Water Bagel, 542 Fischer Blvd.
  • Breaking Bread, 1177 Fischer Blvd.
  • Pizza & Panini, 452 Route 37
  • Siga’s Pizza, 1808 Route 37
Both suspects face multiple counts of burglary, theft and criminal mischief. They are both being held in Ocean County Jail.
