Barnegat Police Arrest Three On Multiple Drug Charges


Three people were arrested and charged with a number of drug offenses after a Barnegat police officer stopped their car for a motor vehicle violation, police said.

Patrolman Nicholas Venuto arrested Ethan McCrakne, 22, Barnegat, Frank Dichiara, 27, Toms River and Lindsey Frusco, 22 East Brunswick on Jan. 13 on West Bay Avenue, Lt. Keith Germain said.

When Venuto searched the vehicle, he found quantities of heroin and crack cocaine, police said.

McCraken and Dichiara were both charged with possession of heroin, possession of cocaine, possession of heroin with intent to distribute, and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. They were processed and released pending a court date, Germain said. 

Frusco provided a false identity to officers by identifying herself as Brittany Frusco (her sister) and providing Brittany's personal information. Officers discovered same when alerted that the fingerprints did not match Brittany, but instead matched Lindsey, he said.

Lindsey Frusco was charged with hindering apprehension, possession of heroin, possession of cocaine, possession of heroin with intent to distribute, and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. She was lodged in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River in default of $70,000 bail.

Ethan you are sadly an addict. Get to rehab before your mom has to find you dead. You are in denial. Stop the cycle and who cares if the patch left a name out. You are as guilty as everyone else in that car. My thanks to the officer that pulled your vehicle over and had the intuition to search the vehicle and make the arrests. Ethan take this as a wake-up call and get your life straight. Otherwise, your name will next be published in the obituary.
