YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Rochelle Park man already facing drug charges in Elmwood Park and Clifton was charged today with stealing and fencing $1,500 worth of musical equipment stolen from a neighboring garage.

Investigators recovered some of the amplifiers, microphones, and mixers after checking with local pawn shops and second-hand dealer, Detective Sgt. James DePreta told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this afternoon.

They also zeroed in on 27-year-old Rocco Riotto, a tenant in a home that shares the property with the garage, DePreta said.

Detectives arrested Riotto in front of the residence earlier today.

He was being held on $20,000 bail, charged with burglary and theft.

Elmwood Park police arrested Riotto in late July after they said they caught him carrying 16 bags of heroin and a hypodermic syringe when they found him in the parking lot of a local shopping center.

Rocco Riotto was turned over to Clifton police on a warrant following the 9:50 p.m. arrest at the Elmwood Shopping Center on Broadway, Police Chief Michael Foligno told CLIFFVIEW PILOT at the time.
