Dolores Catania’s stolen Porsche has been found — but it was destroyed.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star’s boyfriend, Paul “Paulie” Connell, tells Page Six exclusively that police discovered Catania’s smashed car in Linden.
“The car was involved in a chase and the occupants of the car crashed into a pole,” Connell says. “We believe there were arrests made when the car finally came to a stop, but not sure of the exact details.”
He adds, “The car is totaled. It looks like possibly one of the occupants was injured — or two of them.”
Catania, 51, went to see if the thieves had left any of her belongings behind, but Connell reveals there was “nothing left” in the vehicle.
“On the flip side, we are currently out car shopping,” Connell says. “She wants to make sure that people know, always lock your cars and keep your key fobs stored in a safe place.”
Connell also shared with us footage of the totaled car that shows just how smashed the front of the Porsche was.
Page Six broke the news that Catania’s luxe car was stolen from Connell’s home in Edgewater, NJ, last weekend.
“Dolores is determined to find her car with the help of authorities,” an insider told Page Six exclusively, adding that a police report had been filed in Bergen County.
“She is aggravated but also really shaken up over the fact that someone would steal it right out of Paulie’s driveway,” the source continued.
Catania’s ex-boyfriend David Principe purchased the car for her — a gesture that became a point of controversy amongst the “RHONJ” cast during Season 11.
“He didn’t give her a ring, so she didn’t move in [with him], but he just got her a Porsche,” Jackie Goldschneider said to the group, to which her husband, Evan, quipped back, “It means, ‘I’m just going to get you a car instead of a ring.’”
