Wanted Marion Man Found Inside Dryer

A Marion man wanted on a long list of charges was found late Monday night hiding in a most unusual place…a dryer.

Police say they received a tip through the local Crime Stoppers program that 36-year old Joseph Floriana Junior was hiding inside a home in the 37-hundred block of South Houck Street.  When officers arrived, they found Floriana hiding inside a clothes dryer in the home’s basement.  He was then arrested without incident.

Just this week, Floriana had been the subject of the weekly Crime Stoppers announcement that airs locally.
