Weekly Shoplifting Arrests 10/9/14-10/16/14

The Dover Police Department responded to twelve shoplifting calls between Noon on October 9th and Noon on October 16th. Two of those calls were determined to be Fraudulent Return attempts/Theft by False Pretense, bringing the total number of shoplifting cases to ten for the week. This is a decrease of eight calls from last week’s post. Of those ten shoplifting complaints, a merchant declined prosecution in one, two are still under investigation, and arrests were made in 7 cases. A total of 8 adults and one juvenile were arrested in those seven cases which were cleared by arrests. As the holiday season quickly approaches, the department hopes to continue to see a decrease or low volume of shoplifters for the remainder of the season.
