Kmart em­ployee thwarts sho­plifter

Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER -

A loss preven­tion of­fi­cer at Kmart stopped a man from steal­ing hun­dreds of dol­lars worth of mer­chan­dise on Satur­day.

Ac­cord­ing to Ne­wark Po­lice spokesman Cpl. James Spadola, the in­ci­dent oc­curred at ap­prox­i­mately 10:48 a.m. at the store in the Col­lege Square Shop­ping Cen­ter.

Spadola said the man tried to walk out with sev­eral items – to­tal­ing $325 – but dropped them once he was con­fronted by the loss pre- ven­tion of­fi­cer. He then left the store and pos­si­bly got into a blue Ford Fu­sion.

Po­lice have re­leased sur­veil­lance footage of the man and are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help to iden­tify him. He is de­scribed as a while man, 30 to 40 years old, wear­ing a white T-shirt, blue shorts and a green Philadelphia Ea­gles base­ball cap. If found, he could face charges for shoplift­ing.

Any­one with ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion on this in­ci­dent should con­tact Cpl. Ron­ald Zap­pa­ter­rini at Ron­ald.Zap­pa­ter­ or 302-366-7100 x3444.

Po­lice be­lieve this man tried to steal items from Kmart on Aug. 6 and are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help to iden­tify him.
