Man wearing “shoplifting girdle” nabbed in NY thefts www.privateofficer.com
Nicholas Evans, 26, was seen entering a changing room at Lord & Taylor with a polo shirt Friday, police said. Store security reported that they later saw him leave without the shirt.
When they tried to stop him, he struggled with a security officer and tried to run out of the store. The guard caught him and held him until police got there.
Clarkstown police said that Evans was wearing an abdominal girdle that was lined with tin foil and a pair of wire cutters to cut off security tags.
He was charged with robbery, a felony, and misdemeanor charges of petty larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, criminal possession of an anti-security device, criminal possession of burglar tools and harassment.
Evans was arraigned by Clarkstown Justice Craig Johns, who set $5,000 bail. Evans is being held in the Rockland County jail.
