A shoplifter was arrested on Monday after attempting to steal from Empire Kosher Supermarket.
The perp walked into Empire Kosher on Monday afternoon and began stuffing bars of deodorant into his clothing, even sticking a few into his socks.
Seeing his actions, the store manager called Crown Heights Shomrim who arrived in short time and kept the perp from leaving.
A few minutes later, officers from the NYPD 71st Precinct arrived and removed the stolen items from where the perp had stashed them, returning them to the store.
They then arrested the shoplifter and brought him over to the station.
“Thanks to alert employees and fast response by our volunteers in collaboration with responding @NYPD71Pct,” Crown Heights Shomrim wrote on Twitter. “A subject was arrested for shoplifting multiple items.”
