Just after 4 p.m. on Oct. 25, Officer Maxwell Neiley responded to the Macy’s store at the Warwick Mall for a report of a male shoplifting suspect in the custody of loss prevention.
At the scene, an asset protection detective at the store told Neiley he had observed the suspect carrying a backpack inside the store at approximately 3:40 p.m. that afternoon. The suspect is said to have selected a sweatshirt, removed its security sensor, concealed the item inside the sweatshirt he was wearing and exited the store without making any attempt to pay. At that point, the suspect was met by asset protection personnel and escorted back inside the store, where two stolen clothing items with a combined value of $197 – the sweatshirt and a pair of pants – were recovered.
