Newark Post - - Police Blotter - By KARIE SIM­MONS ksim­mons@ches­pub.com

Ne­wark Po­lice are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help to iden­tify a man who has been cap­tured on cam­era steal­ing from the Acme in Sub­ur­ban Plaza twice since May.

Spokesman Cpl. James Spadola said the store’s loss pre­ven­tion of­fi­cer was re­view­ing Sun­day’s se­cu­rity footage and saw the man take two con­tain­ers of Tide Pods de­ter­gent packs worth $21 each and one pack of Gil­lette ra­zor blades worth $37.50 off the shelf around 8:30 a.m. He con­cealed the items in­side his clothes as he walked out of the store.

Spadola said the of­fi­cer rec­og­nized the man from a pre­vi­ous in­ci­dent at the same store. On May 24, he stole a pack of ra­zors and a bot­tle of Dove body wash be­fore driv­ing off in a small gold or sil­ver car.

Po­lice have re­leased sur­veil­lance footage of both in­ci­dents. The al­leged thief is de­scribed as a large black man be­tween 6 feet and 6 feet 9 inches tall and weigh­ing 200 to 300 pounds.

Any­one with any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion should call Ne­wark Po­lice at 302-366-7111.

Po­lice are try­ing to iden­tify this man who stole from Acme in Sub­ur­ban Plaza on May 24 and July 24.
