Shoplifter arrested after hide and seek http://www.privateofficer.com
A 38-year-old local man accused of shoplifting from two area stores was arrested yesterday when police found him hiding in a culvert pipe after he ran from store security, police said.
Thomas E. Winant, of 44 Park St., walked out of the Sears at Solomon Pond Mall at 1:45 p.m., carrying a boombox that store security said he did not pay for, according to the police report on file at Marlborough District Court.
When confronted, Winant dropped the stereo and ran away, leaving his pickup truck parked at the Sears automotive area, according to the report.
Police had first been called to the area when a woman saw Winant walk out of the DSW Shoes store twice, each time pulling shoes out of his pants and putting them in his truck, police said.
As police spoke to the woman, they received a call from Sears reporting a shoplifting suspect on the run.
Marlborough Police Officer David Garceau later found Winant hiding in a culvert pipe, according to the report.
Inside Winant’s truck, police found three pairs of shoes and a car duster taken from the auto store, police said. Winant was arrested and charged with two counts of shoplifting and one count of shoplifting over $100 by concealing merchandise, police said.
He was arraigned yesterday in Marlborough District Court and released on his own recognizance by Judge Andrew D’Angelo. Winant is scheduled to appear in court again today for an appearance of counsel.
