Hermitage police said Abdul Rauf Sani, and Alizabeth Ellen Sani were arrested on warrants for access device fraud, identity theft, receiving stolen property and criminal conspiracy.

Seized from the storage lockers were 20 gallons of paint and an estimated 30,000 plain T-shirts in various colors, police said.

West Warwick, RI: State Trooper's Seat-belt stop leads to arrest of brothers, charges of shoplifting $10,000 in medication from CVS
At 3:11 p.m. Saturday, a trooper stopped a motor vehicle occupied by two brothers from Pennsylvania. While speaking with the occupants, the trooper glimpsed silver tin foil duct tape and a piece of steel mesh nylon on the rear seat. Through his experience the trooper was aware that these items are commonly used in "boost bags" during the act of shoplifting to avoid security detection. Both occupants were taken into custody on the charge of obstruction of a police officer, and while searching them in connection with the arrest. The trooper "observed a layer of tin foil duct tape affixed to the inner portion of the men's pants." Located during a search of the vehicle, the state police allege, were three large plastic trash bags containing $10,000 of non-prescription medication with the security labels still attached that had been stolen from four CVS stores in Rhode Island. They also seized Walmart receipts for tin foil duct tape, the tape itself, a piece of steel mesh nylon and a package of Heat-n-bond brand adhesive.

Vacaville, CA: Police arrest 5 stealing $4,700 in energy drinks
Red Bull gives you wings...or in this case, a pair of shiny bracelets and some time in jail. That's what five men from Oakland discovered after stealing $4,700 in Red Bull! Earlier this evening the crew was seen at a local grocery store wheeling out a cart full of the popular energy drink. They loaded the stolen product into a rented U-Haul van and sped out of the parking lot, running a posted stop sign and red light. The keen eye of a Vacaville officer spotted the van on westbound I-80. A traffic stop was conducted and the five individuals were taken into custody. After searching the van, it was evident that our local grocery store was only one of many the crew had graced with their presence. Four of the men were booked into Solano County Jail. The information is listed below. The fifth subject was booked into juvenile hall.
