Arnold Man Indicted for Dragging Owner of Stolen Truck

Police said the owner tracked the truck to a parking lot and confronted the men, who drove off as he was hanging onto the truck's door handle.

A 28-year-old Arnold man was indicted by a St. Louis County grand jury Dec. 5 for dragging the owner of a stolen truck.

Anthony Passiglia was charged with second-degree assault and vehicle theft. He is being held at the St. Louis County jail on $25,000 bond.

St. Louis County prosecutors said Passiglia and Nicholas Doane, 19, of the first block of Wampler in Arnold, stole Doane’s father’s truck on Oct. 5.

Doane’s father used a cell phone app to track the truck to a Kohl’s department store parking lot in Crestwood, where he confronted the two men and demanded his truck back.

Passiglia jumped in the truck and began driving off as the owner was holding onto the door handle, and the victim fell and broke his leg, according to a Crestwood Police report. Passiglia backed up and let Nicholas Doane in the truck, and the two men drove off, leaving him in the parking lot.

Nicholas Doane, who was indicted for vehicle theft, is being held on $15,000 bond.
