Police: Woman Avoided Arrest by Hiding Under Clothing in Closet
A 30-year-old Barnegat woman wanted on multiple warrants ultimately charged with resisting arrest
Police arrested a township woman on multiple outstanding warrants this week after finding her hiding from officers in a closet.
Joann Landi, 30, was wanted on $1,250 in outstanding warrants out of Barnegat, Stafford and Little Egg Harbor townships, said Lt. Keith Germain of the Barnegat Township Police Department in a press release.
On Tuesday, police found Landi in her home on Deck Street off Georgetown Boulevard, where she was attempting to hide from arresting officers under a pile of clothing in a bedroom closet, said Germain. After she was caught, Landi struggled with police and was charged with resisting arrest, Germain said.
Landi was lodged in the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $3,750 bail.
