Michael Liopis, 36, of Belleville, was released to the North Bergen Police Department, since he had two active no bail warrants from the township, after the Secaucus Walmart opted not to press charges against him on August 3, according to Police Det. Sgt. Michael Torres.
Liopis was allegedly shoplifting Red Bulls energy drinks, cereal boxes, and paper towels from the store, totaling an unknown dollar amount on August 3 around 11:47 p.m., officials said.
Then, on August 7 at about 3:16 p.m., Brian Durant, 33, of East Orange, was charged with shoplifting, possession of burglar tools and possession of an anti-shoplifting device, authorities said.
According to police, Durant used a box cutter to remove an Xbox, valued at $418.92, from the packaging.
Furthermore, Angel R. Colmenares, 53, of Newark, was charged with shoplifting around 2:48 p.m. on August 10 for attempting to steal a phone charger and 49-inch LG television.
In another somewhat related incident, Pandele Harna, 27, from Queens, New York, was charged with theft by deception at approximately 5:27 p.m. on August 6 for attempting to scam a Walmart cashier via a “short change scheme,” authorities said.
