Man charged with steal­ing pa­tio fur­ni­ture from Newark mar­ket

Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER -

A Philadel­phia man was cited for al­legedly steal­ing pa­tio fur­ni­ture from the Acme in Subur­ban Plaza.

Thomas J. Hicks, 34, ar­rived at the store at 7 a.m. Sun­day and loaded a fur­ni­ture set worth $582 into his pickup truck, ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Ger­ald Bryda, a spokesman for the Newark Po­lice Depart­ment.

Hicks then went into the store and filled a cart with items, but he aban­doned the cart as Acme em­ploy­ees “ac­tively watched” him, Bryda said.

The em­ploy­ees con­fronted Hicks, who un­loaded most of the fur­ni­ture and drove away with two chair cush­ions still in his truck, Bryda said.

Ar­riv­ing of­fi­cers pulled over the truck and cited Hicks for shoplift­ing.

He was re­leased at the scene pend­ing an ap­pear­ance in Newark Al­der­man’s Court.

Any­one with information re­gard­ing this in­ci­dent is asked to con­tact Of­fi­cer Corey Spencer at CSpencer@newark.de.us or 302366-7100 ext. 3485.
