A Maryland man was arrested earlier this month for allegedly shoplifting $350 worth of merchandise from the Target at Potomac Yard.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, Nov. 24. The Target loss prevention manager told police that two suspects walked into the store, and that he recognized one of them as a frequent shopper, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Using store cameras, the prevention manager followed the suspects, who both had carts, and observed them place items within two storage containers that were in the baskets.
“At one point, (a suspect) places a blazer he had been wearing into the shopping cart to conceal additional items,” police said in the search warrant.
The suspects then went to the self-checkout area of the store, where one of them allegedly scanned the top storage box in one of the baskets twice. The suspects then walked out of the store with everything concealed in the storage bins.
The stolen items were listed as:
- One PC gaming headset valued at $99
- One quilt blanket valued at $99
- One Instant Pot Pressure Cooker valued at $59.99
- Three Pokemon card packages valued at $4.99 apiece, totaling $14.97
- Three Pokemon card multi-pack packages valued at $12.99 apiece, totaling $38.97
- One Pokemon Elite Trainer Box valued at $39.99
The suspects were then seen by employees leaving the area in a Maryland car. A check of the license plate and credit card used found that both belonged to one of the suspect’s girlfriends. The suspect who allegedly drove his girlfriend’s car and used her credit card was charged with petit larceny earlier this month and goes to court on Jan. 14. The other suspect wore a face mask and has not been identified.
