HAMMONTON—An employee of the local McDonald’s on the White Horse Pike (Route 30) was arrested and charged at 10:40 a.m. on March 28 in connection with the theft of more than $3,000, Hammonton Police Chief Kevin Friel said during an interview on April 4, adding in a later interview on April 11 that a second woman had also been arrested at 1:52 p.m. on April 4 in connection with the theft.


Friel said Officer Christopher Henshaw handled a walk-in complaint of a theft that had occurred in the prime block of the White Horse Pike (Route 30).


“The restaurant manager came down to report that one of the employees making the night drop had not deposited at the bank as per company policy,” Friel said.


The accused, Ashley Feliciano, 23, of Hammonton, was interviewed and charged with theft of more than $3,000, Friel said.


“It’s a theft of moveable property, which is a third-degree offense,” Friel said.


She was arrested, processed and released pending a court appearance in Atlantic County Superior Court, Friel said.


Henshaw was the investigating and charging officer, Friel said.


According to information provided to The Gazette on April 11 by Friel, a second arrest was made at 1:52 p.m. on April 4 in connection with the $3,000 theft from McDonald’s.
