CAUGHT

Trying To Leave “Undetected”

A shoplifter tried to get out of the Kings Plaza Mall last week without setting off scanners. On Wednesday, March 8th, around 4:30 p.m. employees of the mall’s Sunglass Hut spotted a man using a security tag desensitizer on merchandise. Officers of the 63rd Precinct responding to the call chased the suspect outside of the mall to Avenue U near Flatbush Avenue and placed him under arrest. The thief had bags of stolen merchandise, including clothing and sneakers as well as the device. He was charged with numerous counts of grand larceny.
