Teenagers have claimed the Red Carpet Prom dress shop in Wayne failed to fill orders, or delivered dresses that were damaged or the wrong size.

The store’s owner, Patricia Dowling, filed a burglary report last week, claiming $600 and 40 dresses were stolen. Police Capt. James Clarke tells The Record newspaper the store’s security cameras captured Dowling taking the dresses off the rack.

 

 

Police are deciding whether Dowling filed a false complaint. The newspaper reports Dowling’s previous store, Red Carpet Bridal in Gloucester County, has had more than $70,000 in judgments
and liens against it.
