Evesham NJ police are on the lookout for a New York man accused of shoplifting computers from an Apple Store.
The thefts were committed on July 26, 2016. According to law enforcement, the suspect and an accomplice walked into the Apple Store located on Route 73 in Evesham Township NJ and stole four laptop computers. The suspects allegedly grabbed MacBook Pro computers and fled the area on foot.
The stolen computers are said to have a total retail value of approximately $10,000.
Apple Store employees dialed 911 and notified the Evesham Township Police Department, which immediately dispatched police officers to the scene. However, by the time Evesham NJ cops arrived at the store, the suspects were long gone.
Law enforcement investigated the theft incident by speaking to witnesses and obtaining store surveillance footage. Evesham cops also worked with NYC detectives to identify one of the suspects as a 35-year-old man who resides in Staten Island, New York.
Both suspects in the case will likely be charged with second degree shoplifting in connection with the computer theft. A conviction on second degree shoplifting charges could potentially lead to a sentence of 5-10 years in New Jersey State Prison.
Authorities are still searching for both suspects. Anyone who has information about the theft incident or the suspects should contact Evesham detectives at 856-983-1116.
