State to auction off contents on NJ prom gown shop

Posted: Updated:

WAYNE, N.J. (AP) — The assets of a northern New Jersey dress shop that closed in the middle of prom season will go on the auction block Wednesday.

The state says Red Carpet Pageant and Prom in Wayne failed to deliver dresses to at least 16 customers who had paid in full or part. The transactions totaled $5,400.

Proceeds from the auction will be held to help those who lost money.

Consumer affairs officials say store manager Patricia Dowling and her husband, Michael, of Deptford, have not responded to a complaint and the state will seek a default judgment.

Patricia Dowling also is charged with filing a false police report after she claimed 40 dresses were stolen. Police said the store's security cameras captured Dowling taking the dresses off the rack.
