POTTSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - July 17, 2013 (WPVI) -- Authorities in Pottstown say a man they call a wedding crasher alleged to have stolen thousands of dollars in gifts has now been charged in another theft from a wedding reception.
Montgomery County police and prosecutors said Wednesday that 35-year-old Joseph Franzone Jr. is now facing theft and related counts in a June 22 theft from the RiverCrest Golf Club in Upper Providence Township.
Authorities said a wedding cake card box containing about $9,000 in gifts was taken.
Franzone was earlier charged in the June 9 theft of gifts that had been loaded into a car outside a reception at the William Penn Inn in Lower Gwynedd Township.
A telephone number listed for Franzone's attorney did not allow a message to be left seeking comment Wednesday.
