Walmart and Pathmark Loss Prevention catch the same Tide thief on the same day in Upper Chichester, Pennsylvania  Both incidents took place Thursday afternoon at the Larkins Corner Shopping Center. Police were dispatched to the Walmart at 12:46 p.m. for a shoplifter in custody. Walmart management told Caulfield he saw the suspect, identified as Sanchez, trying to leave the store without paying for seven containers of liquid Tide, worth $107.90. Sanchez allegedly told the police officer he had no money for his family and was going to try to make some money by selling the detergent. He was placed under arrest. A background check revealed he had been arrested by Upper Darby police in February for retail theft, according to the affidavit of probable cause. Sanchez was released at the scene, pending the issuance of a summons for retail theft. A short time later, at 2:10 p.m., police were dispatched to the Pathmark, next-door to the Walmart, for a retail theft. Store employees told Police that a man, later identified as Sanchez, had entered the store and loaded a shopping cart with four bottles of Tide. Sanchez allegedly pushed the cart out the door, but was stopped in the store's vestibule by a manager, who knew of the Tide theft from the Walmart. The employee grabbed the cart and Sanchez fled in a minivan. Police conducted a stop of the van and arrested Sanchez. He was transported to police headquarters and later arraigned on a felony retail theft charge. (Source

New Haven police bust fencing operation run by ex-con
Police busted an alleged fencing operation this week after finding a warehouse full of power equipment. Police caught wind of the alleged operation after electrical tools valued at about $40,000 were stolen out of a vehicle in the parking lot at Ikea on Sargent Drive, said Sgt. Robert Lawlor Jr., head of the police robbery/burglary unit. Hamden police notified New Haven officers that some of the allegedly stolen tools were being sold on eBay. New Haven police followed the lead, which subsequently brought them to the 75 Daggett St. home of Scott Cintron, 47. Police executed a search warrant at the residence. They found the allegedly stolen tools along with a number of other heavy-duty power tools, lawn mowers, snow blowers and other items that are suspected to be stolen, Lawlor said. Police spent about six hours seizing items from the room and are still trying to determine potential owners. Cintron, a convicted felon, was arrested Tuesday and is charged with first-degree larceny, a felony offense. There likely will be more charges once police finish processing seized items. In total he has been convicted on 24 counts, 21 of which were larcenies or burglaries, Lawlor said. (Source
