A recent shoplifting streak has swept through the New Jersey area. Police reported that one Macy’s worker in Secaucus was recently charged with stealing beauty products. The suspect is accused of stealing at least $1,000 worth of items. Police had responded to Macy’s at Meadowlands Parkway in the afternoon when they found the suspect with the beauty items in his possession. Days later, an employee of Burger Fi was also arrested on theft charges. This suspect already had an outstanding warrant.
On top of these incidents, another suspect was arrested at Kohls for shoplifting. In addition to shoplifting, she was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. A few days later, a man was arrested and charged with shoplifting when he was caught fleeing a Walmart parking lot. Investigators do not believe any of these incidents are related.
