An accused Ocean County burglar found herself behind bars after a clothes dryer
turned out not to be the best place to hide.
Police in Barnegat, N.J. arrested Heather Oneill-Deller, 34, on Jan. 8 after she alle-
gedly stole cash and property from Lefty’s Tavern the night before.
Police say they were called to Lefty’s for reports of the theft and identified Oneill-
Deller from surveillance video inside the bar.
When police went to the woman’s home on Emerald Drive, they say they found her
hiding out inside the clothes dryer. Oneill-Deller was arrested for burglary and
sent to county jail in lieu of $15,000 bail, police said. A man in the home at the time
of the arrest, Edward Deller, was also arrested. He’s charged with hindering appre-
hension. He’s also in jail.
