YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A since-fired bell hop at the Saddle Brook Marriott was arrested by local police last night and charged with slipping into the rooms of newlyweds at their receptions and snatching some of their wedding-gift cash.
Timothy Henriquez, 30, of Chester, NY, is charged with two counts of theft — for a July incident in which $770 was taken and for another on Saturday, when a couple said $500 was stolen. He was released on a summons pending a Municipal Court hearing, police said.
Henriquez, who was hired in May, apparently slipped up through the freight elevator so that he wouldn’t be detected by hotel surveillance cameras and then used a swipe card to get into unoccupied newlywed suites, police said.
“Upon learning of his arrest, Marriott terminated his employment,” Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler said.
