Fleeing shoplifter drops backpack with an I.D. in it
Town of Niagara Police reported that they have tentatively identified a shoplifter whose identification card was found in a backpack he dropped while fleeing from the scene of a crime.
According to reports, the man shoved $158 worth of meat, seafood and dairy products into his backpack April 4 in Wegmans on Military Road before leaving the store. Confronted outside, he dropped the backpack and fled on foot, last being seen in the vicinity of 80th Street and Niagara Falls Boulevard.
Police recovered the stolen property along with an I.D. card inside the discarded backpack. After checking the name on the card against Niagara Falls police mug shots, they tentatively identified the suspect and have issued a warrant for his arrest.
