Twin brothers arrested in Henry County last week who led police on a high-speed chase that ended at Walmart are wanted for questioning in a New York murder investigation.
Louie and Vincent Iacono, 36, Brooklyn, New York, were arrested Sept. 6 after a chase that began on westbound Interstate 70 near Wilbur Wright Road.
According to the New York Police Department, the Iacono brothers are wanted for questioning in the death of 35-year-old Carmine Carini of Brooklyn.
On Aug. 2, New York police responded to a 911 call of a water rescue in the vicinity of East 58th Street and Avenue U within the confines of the 63rd Precinct. Upon arrival, an unidentified male was observed in the water unconscious and unresponsive. The body was removed by the New York Police Department and the Fire Department of the City of New York. EMS responded and pronounced the male, later identified as Carini, deceased at the location.
As of Tuesday morning, the Iacono brothers remained incarcerated at Henry County Jail.
Court records show Louie Iacono pleaded not guilty during an initial hearing Monday in Henry Circuit Court 2. His jury trial is scheduled for Jan. 22, 2018, and his bond is listed at $50,000 surety, $3,000 cash.
Vincent Iacono also entered a not guilty plea in court Monday during his initial hearing. His bond was set at $30,000 surety, $2,000 cash. Vincent Iacono’s jury trial is set for Jan. 22, 2018.
The Iaconos’ arrest in Henry County began with a traffic stop by the PACE Team, a multi-jurisdiction agency that patrols Interstate 70 in Henry and surrounding counties.
Deputy Nick Ernstes, a PACE Team member with the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department, originally pulled over the Chevy Avalanche the men were traveling in for license plate violation. The driver of the vehicle, Louie Iacono, fled from the scene, said PACE Team member Sgt. James Goodwin of the Henry County Sheriff’s Department.
Police pursued the men to the Ind. 3 exit, turning north. Louie Iacono made a u-turn at Walmart near County Road 300 South and proceeded to head south on Ind. 3, turning into the parking lot of Ivy Tech before driving across the grass into Walmart’s parking lot, Goodwin said.
Louie Iacono pulled up to the Walmart entrance, abandoned his vehicle and ran into the store, where he was apprehended by police near the cash registers.
Louie Iacono was charged with criminal recklessness, two counts of resisting law enforcement, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia.
Vincent Iacono, who remained in the vehicle, was charged with resisting law enforcement, possession of paraphernalia, possession of narcotic drugs and possession of a controlled substance.
The PACE Team was assisted by members of the New Castle Police Department, the Henry County Sheriff’s Department and the Indiana State Police.
Pills and personal-use amounts of heroin were allegedly located in Iacono’s vehicle.
