Sho­plifters steal body wash, shrimp from Subur­ban Plaza store

Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER - By JOSH SHAN­NON jshan­non@ches­pub.com

Two sho­plifters stole body wash and shrimp from the Acme in Subur­ban Plaza on Mon­day af­ter­noon, po­lice re­ported.

The first theft hap­pened at 1:30 p.m. when a man en­tered the store, hid sev­eral bot­tles of Dove Body Wash un­der his coat and left with­out pay­ing, ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Ger­ald Bryda, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice Depart­ment.

As store em­ploy­ees watched on sur­veil­lance cam­eras, the man re­turned a short time later and stole more body wash.

Ap­prox­i­mately an hour later, another man en­tered the store, loaded a shop­ping bas­ket with five pack­ages of shrimp worth a to­tal of $90 and left, Bryda said. Store em­ploy­ees yelled for him to stop, but he did not com­ply.

The first sus­pect is de­scribed as a mid­dle-aged white man wear­ing a brown coat and a black knit hat. The sec­ond sus­pect is a white man, 25 to 35 years old, with dark hair, a beard and wear­ing a dark hooded jacket and jeans. He drove away in a sil­ver sedan.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the thefts should con­tact Of­fi­cer Casey Rivers at CRivers@ne­wark.de.us or 302-366-7100 ext. 3479. You can send an anony­mous text mes­sage tip by tex­ting 302NPD and your mes­sage to TIP411. In­for­ma­tion can also be pro­vided anony­mously to Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or via the in­ter­net at www.tip­sub­mit.com where a re­ward may be avail­able.
