A Montgomery County man accused of stealing gifts from a wedding last week is now facing additional charges in connection with the theft of stealing gifts from a second wedding.

Joseph Patrick Franzone, Jr. turned himself into authorities Friday to face charges of stealing $3,000-$5,000 in gifts from a wedding July 7 at the William Penn Inn in Lower Gwynedd Twp.

Franzone, 35, of 324 Cherry Alley in Bridgeport, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly stealing a wedding cake card box from a wedding reception at RiverCrest Golf Club June 22 in Upper Providence Twp.

During that reception, witnesses saw a white man wearing shorts and T-shirt loitering around the reception area. Around 8:50 p.m., a witness saw the man walk to where the cake box was displayed, pick it up and fled into the parking lot.

The value of the stolen gifts is approximately $9,000.
