Natick Police arrested a Framingham man wanted on seven warrants after he was taken part in an "organized retail theft" at the Natick Mall on Monday. Police arrested Anthony Horne, 29, after the 4 p.m. theft at Ulta Beauty. Police went to the mall after mall security said they had a theft suspect in the parking lot. Police saw Horne pacing behind his car. When he saw the officers, he locked himself in the back seat, but later got out. "He yelled at a female in the car, 'Don't (expletive) rat. Keep your mouth shut,' in an apparent attempt to intimidate her from speaking to police," Prosecutor Susan Harris said. The woman, who was not charged, told police they were heroin addicts. She said Horne would go into a store and steal several items and then either she or Horne would return the items to get cash. That day, he stole approximately $240 worth of makeup from the store, Harris said. Police charged Horne, of 126 Beaver St., with larceny of property worth less than $250, intimidation of a witness, disorderly conduct and conspiracy to commit a crime.
