Most wanted pharmacy burglar pinched in North Wildwood

Au­thor­it­ies from Phil­adelphia and North Wild­wood have cap­tured a fu­git­ive who was wanted for the burg­lary of a North­east phar­macy in May and is con­sidered a “per­son of in­terest” in nu­mer­ous ATM break-ins across the city.

Den­nis Woods, aka Den­nis Boyce, 38, was holed up at the Aruba Motel at 20th Street and Surf Av­en­ue in the pop­u­lar New Jer­sey shore town. Phil­adelphia and North Wild­wood po­lice, along with FBI agents, ar­res­ted him there “without in­cid­ent” on Fri­day af­ter­noon, ac­cord­ing to Of­ficer Christine O’Bri­en, a Phil­adelphia po­lice spokes­wo­man.

Woods, whose last known ad­dress was the 2400 block of S. Amer­ic­an Street in South Philly, was lis­ted by North­east De­tect­ives as a top five Most Wanted fu­git­ive on Ju­ly 3 and 31 as part of the North­east Times’ reg­u­lar Most Wanted fea­ture. On Aug. 13, Phil­adelphia po­lice an­nounced Woods as a sus­pect in nine ATM heists this sum­mer.

The phar­macy burg­lary oc­curred on May 5 at Delaire Phar­macy, 9400 State Road, when Woods and an ac­com­plice al­legedly broke in­to the busi­ness and made off with pre­scrip­tion med­ic­a­tions.

Woods is held at Cape May County Cor­rec­tion­al Cen­ter while await­ing ex­tra­di­tion to Phil­adelphia. He was also wanted on war­rants out of North Wild­wood for traffic vi­ol­a­tions and out of Dept­ford Town­ship, N.J., for tres­passing. ••
