A White Plains man's attempt to steal more than 21 cans of Red Bull ended in an arrest Sunday evening, police say.
James Ray, 49, of 110-112 Park Ave., was charged with misdemeanor petty larceny after police tracked him down nearby a few minutes after the attempted theft, police say. An employee at 7-Eleven on Martine Ave. told police Ray walked into the store at about 5:22 p.m. and started stuffing the front pocket of a hooded sweatshirt with cans of Red Bull.
Police say Ray walked out of the store with 21 cans of the energy drink and refused to pay. An employee chased Ray into the Macy's across the street while another worker called police. Police say Ray dumped the 21 cans of Red Bull in the store, and was caught by police nearby.
The workers at 7-Eleven identified Ray after the arrest. Ray was held for arraignment.
