Further investigation by Manchester Township Police Detectives has resulted in additional charges for a Toms River woman suspected of selling firearms stolen from her former roommate.
Bonnie A. Fahoury, 51, of Toms River, initially was charged on March 18 with stealing one firearm from the Weldon Road home of her former roommate, a 51-year-old Manchester resident.
Subsequent investigation by Detective Albert Vega, along with Patrolmen David Fusaro and Patrolmen Michael Steffen, found that Fahoury stole a total of eight firearms, including handguns, shotguns and rifles, from the home between September 2013 and March of this year while residing there with her husband.
The firearms were then sold to the Guns and Roses gun shop in Toms River. Further investigation of files there led Detectives to issue the additional charges. Fahoury sold firearms at the Guns and Roses gun shop on six different occasions during that seven month period.
Police have accounted for all eight of the stolen firearms.
The victim notified police on March 16 that multiple weapons were missing from his home. Fahoury and her husband had been living with the victim for at least a year, but had since moved to Toms River.
Fahour was charged with eight counts of unlawful possession of a weapon and eight counts of theft of a firearm. She is being held at the Ocean County Jail on $150,000 bail, no 10 percent option, for those charges.
Fahoury initially was being held on one weapon charge and a possession of a controlled dangerous substance charge lodged on March 18. Bail for those offenses was set at $30,000.
