Former Real Housewives of New Jersey Dina Manzo and her husband David Cantin are finally close to getting justice for the 2017 home invasion of their Holmdel New Jersey home.

According to TMZ, 51-year-old James Mainello from New Jersey is in police custody. Mainello is facing multiple charges for his role in the May 2017 home invasion.

Sources say DNA evidence played a huge role in capturing the suspect. Cops believe Mainello was one of the 2 alleged burglars.

Back in 2017, Dina and her then-boyfriend David were the victims of a home invasion that left the couple bound and beaten. While their injuries weren’t life-threatening, Dina was punched the face by the thieves while David was attacked with a baseball bat.

The burglars also made off with an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry.

Dina and David’s lawyer Andrew Brettler tells TMZ that the couple is very grateful to the NJ law enforcement authorities “whose diligent investigation over the last two years culminated in today’s arrest.”

The couple adds, “Thank you to everyone who has expressed concern for our well-being. We’ve had such a great support system.”

Team AllAboutTRH is so happy that Dina and Dave are one step closer to getting justice and putting his horrific experience behind them.
