2 jailed in Subway, KFC break-ins

Published: Wed, October 20, 2010 @ 11:35 p.m.

Staff report


A 33-year-old Youngstown man is being held in the Mahoning County jail in lieu of a $40,000 bond in break-ins at two restaurants, and a 24-year-old city man who police say was driving the suspect’s car is jailed in lieu of a $10,000 bond.

Police said Anthony Fossaceca of Willowcrest Avenue broke into a Subway restaurant on Mahoning Avenue shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday. Nothing was taken, although it appears an attempt was made to take the cash register, which was empty, police said.

An officer believed the suspect was heading for the Subway on Canfield Road. Security guards from Brandywine Apartments, off Canfield Road, heard on the police scanner that the suspect was heading their direction and were able to pin down Fossaceca, police said. He escaped, but was caught by officers who found him hiding in a wooded area, police said.

Before officers arrived, they said Fossaceca smashed a glass door at the KFC on Canfield Road, but nothing was taken. He faces charges of breaking and entering, and possession of criminal tools.

Also arrested, by Austintown and Youngstown police, is Alex Parent of South Dunlap Avenue, who officers say was driving Fossaceca’s car.

After a brief chase, Parent hit a parked car and got the Riviera stuck on a fence he hit on South Schenley Avenue, where he was arrested.

Police said they found drugs in the car. Parent was charged with two counts of possession of drug abuse instruments, and one count each of possession of drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia.

Just some good old boys from the hood exercising their right of foraging for bucks . They will be given the harsh penalty of probation and another chance to fine tune their foraging skills .

So sorry to disappoint you Stan but both of this men are not from Youngstown. Anthony is from Austintown with a nice long criminal history. As much as you may have wanted it to be two black men you youngstown, it's not. You really need to quit thinking that everything that happens in Youngstown is happening by people in Youngstown.

Yep--If it wasnt for that last name of the suspect there would be 40 comments from the dumbazz crackers that frequent this forum. With a name like that--even the dim bulbs could see it was white guys. The usual posters are kinda quiet today.
