A Riverhead man is accused of smashing the window of a Wading River pizzeria on Sunday, May 3, to get inside, and then made off with a jar full of coins and cash.

Riverhead Town police charged Frank Colaiacomo, 30, with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, and traffic infractions after a manhunt in Wading River Sunday night.

Police utilized the state K-9 unit and a Suffolk County police helicopter to help locate the suspect in a vehicle on Dogwood Drive in Wading River, police said.

After his arraignment at headquarters, Colaiacomo was turned over to Suffolk County police, to be charged with a burglary that occurred earlier the same evening within their jurisdiction.
