SALISBURY, Md. - A local police force is working to cut down thefts from businesses. Salisbury Police say they are hoping by publicizing the arrests they make for shoplifting, they will, in turn, reduce incidents of the crime.
They say that shoplifters contribute to retailers having to raise costs to cover those stolen items. Experts say U.S. retailers report $35 million in stolen merchandise, every day.
From January 6 through January 15, Salisbury Police say they made nine shoplifting arrests:
James Trotter, 30, of Bridgeville, DE Robert Williams, 46, of Salisbury, MD Kodie Kreimann Jr., 22, of Salisbury, MD Timothy Moffitt, 60, of Princess Anne, MD George Parker, 70, of Salisbury, MD Bryant Lamplugh, 24, of Millsboro, DE Samantha Mancz, 19, of Salisbury, MD Chaquetta Scott, 27, of Salisbury, MD and a male Juvenile of Laurel, DE
Salisbury Police say all nine people were charged with theft.
