Police took a man into custody after he shoplifted from a Main Street shop, according to Newark police spokesman MCpl. Gerald Bryda.
The suspect entered Flavor on East Main Street on April 10 at 6:50 p.m. He removed security tags from a hat and concealed the hat in a bag he was carrying. When shop employees confronted the suspect, he left the shop after throwing the hat aside, Bryda said.
Employees then discovered he had damaged the hat when he removed the tags, Bryda said.
Police found the 18-year-old suspect outside of Little Caesar’s Pizza on East Delaware Avenue shortly after.
The man was charged with shoplifting under $1,500 and criminal damage. He was arrested via warrant and released on a $350 unsecured bond.
