A White Plains teenager faces a felony grand larceny charge after police say he was caught stealing a $1,150 jacket from Sunday morning.
Store security stopped Christopher Juan, 19, after he walked out with the jacket at 135 Westchester Avenue. When a guard confronted him, Juan struggled and escaped, according to an arrest report.
But Juan dropped his watch and cell phone during the scuffle, the report said. Police then used the cell phone to contact Juan's mother, who told them where he works.
Police later found and arrested Juan, of 23 E. Post Road, and charged him with grand larceny—a class E felony.
A Brooklyn man and women were also charged with felony grand larceny the following day after police say they worked together to steal six shirts from with a total value of $1,250.
Police say Muguel Trinidad, 20, stuffed the shirts into a Bloomingdale's shopping bag while Taeysha Bryon, 20, distracted a sales associate and acted as a lookout.
After the two left the store a sales associate from Nordstrom followed them to the McDonalds at 60 South Broadway and called police. Police interrupted the couple's meal—arresting them both.
While searching Trinidad, police also found a metal device they say he used to remove store security devices, which added a charge for possession of burglary tools—a class A misdemeanor.
Trinidad and Bryon were both held on $750 bail until their court date earlier this week.
