Funny Hoboken shoplifting story…
Petty thief worried about own bicycle
If you’re a regular listener to the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel, you’re certainly familiar with the numerous shoplifting incidents overheard on a weekly basis. Most of them are not really worthy of publication on here – since they’re such petty offenses.
However, in the past hour – and interesting incident took place at the uptown Rite Aid (13th and Willow).
The manager of the store called HPD and said he was in foot pursuit of a shoplifter who stole a big bag of merchandise – and was headed towards the light rail tracks on the west side of town. Hoboken Police quickly responded, and chased the actor up the hill towards Union City / Jersey City Heights. They made the apprehension on the hill itself, along with most of the merchandise.
After the arrest, the perpetrator was quite concerned about his 20″ BMX bike – which he had left in front of the store unsecured. What an idiot!
Good Job Hoboken Police on yet another successful arrest!
