Woman accused of stealing designer handbag during New Port Richey baby shower

NEW PORT RICHEY

Woman accused of stealing designer bag

A 34-year-old woman is accused of stealing a Louis Vuitton purse at a friend's baby shower — along with the $200 in cash that was inside the bag.

Joni Jean Cirillo, of Hudson, was a guest at a baby shower at Waters Edge Recreation Center on Creedmoor Lane on Jan. 9. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Cirillo can be seen on the facility's video surveillance footage draping her jacket over the $1,000 bag and then, minutes later, scooping up the purse and jacket and taking both outside. Cirillo then came back in, without the purse, and rejoined the party.

Cirillo, a dental hygienist and wife of a Pasco firefighter, was arrested Monday and charged with grand theft. She was released from the Pasco County jail the same day on $2,000 bail.

Residents urged to boil water during work

Officials are urging Palm Lakes Terrace residents to boil their water beginning today as construction crews connect new water lines along U.S. 19.

Homes on the northeast corner of U.S. 19 and Trouble Creek Road — including those on Irene Loop, Lones Lane, Wilton Road, Gazania Street, Naftis Lane, Salvia Street, Needle Palm Drive, Fenton Way and Ontario Drive — are advised to boil all water used for drinking or cooking for at least one minute.

Crews will begin work Wednesday night and end Thursday morning. The boil-water notice will be rescinded after the new lines are tested for cleanliness.

Residents with questions can call the city's public works department at (727) 841-4536.
