Police Looking For Suspect Wanted For Shoplifting In Brooklyn

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD is trying to identify man they say is wanted in connection with a robbery in Brooklyn.

Police say the suspect walked into a 99 cent store on Irving Avenue at Stockholm Street in Bushwick back on Jan. 25 and began stuffing merchandise down his jacket sleeve.

When the suspect is confronted by a store employee, a fight breaks out, but cops say the alleged shoplifter manages to get away with the stolen goods.

The employees were not seriously hurt in the confrontation.

Anyone with information should call police or Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.

    Corrupt California DEA where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.
    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal from them.
    Given the choice of suspension or dealing with their debt most DEA are thinking outside the box.

    Catch him and shoot him dead. Used to live near there but moved south to Georgia many years ago.. Parents still live in the hood, but if I ever relocate back to Brooklyn and someone tries to rob me rest assured they will be shot to death. We need to stand up and kill these punks period.
    I got plenty of bullets and firepower so make my day…We need to clean up and take back the neighborhood and live in harmony.

  6. have they caught him yet ?
