NUTLEY — A man who stole nearly $2,000 worth of items from a single shopping cart was careful about how he took the items and what he took.
Police are looking for the man who stole $1,943 worth of items from the ShopRite supermarket on Franklin Avenue on February 5. Nutley Police spokesman Tony Montanari said the suspect in the released footage lined the cart with paper towels.
“He filled the inside with items such as (over-the-counter allergy medication) Clariton and Alegra in volume. These items range from $20 to $44 each and dozens were taken,” Molinari told the New Jersey 101.5.
According to police, the man got out of a gray Nissan Altima parked in front of the store. When the man was done, he met the car in the store’s south parking lot and drove off.
Police said the man was wearing a black mask, black vest, black hat, gray sweatpants and a gray hoodie.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Nutley Police at 973-284-4940.
