WILDWOOD - At around 2 p.m. May 29, the Wildwood Police Department Uniformed Patrol Division responded to the 4300 block of the Boardwalk, for the report of a burglary in progress at a business in that area.

According to a release, officers established a perimeter around the business, and upon making entry, a subject, identified as Michael Pisano, 22, of Kingston, Pa., attempted to flee from the rear of the building. Pisano was ultimately stopped by officers and placed under arrest. At the time of his arrest, Pisano was found in possession of several hundred dollars.

During the continuing investigation conducted by the Wildwood Police Department Detective Division, this money was found to be the proceeds of burglaries committed at the business in which Piscano was located, as well as three additional buildings in the area. Evidence gathered during the follow-up investigation, including video surveillance footage and interviews, confirmed Piscano’s role in these crimes, as well.

Pisano was charged with four counts of burglary, three counts of theft, and three counts of criminal mischief. These charges were placed on warrant complaints, and Pisano was lodged in the Cape May County Correctional Facility, in accordance with New Jersey Bail Reform Guidelines.
