Teaneck Woman Charged with Shoplifting at Seed
She is accused of concealing a pocketbook valued at $215.
Millburn Police arrested an alleged shoplifter about one block from the downtown store from which she allegedly stole.
Police arrested Sharon D. Rideout, 57, of Teaneck, and charged her with shoplifting for the incident reported on Wednesday at Seed 387, which is at the corner of Millburn Avenue and Spring Street.
Rideout is accused of concealing a pocketbook worth $215. The store's staff recovered the pocketbook.
The store staff reported the theft at just before 5 p.m., and police broadcast a description of the accused shoplifter. Detective John Mendelsohn stopped a vehicle fitting the description on Essex Street near the front of Millburn Police Headquarters, police said. An investigation led to Rideout's arrest.
Rideout was turned over to Paramus police to be arrested on a warrant from there.
Woman Arrested for Presenting Fake ID
A New York woman was arrested after allegedly providing fake identification to police at the Mall at Short Hills last week.
Keren E. Edwards, 36, of Mount Vernon, N.Y., was arrested last Monday and charged with possession of an antishoplifting or inventory control device countermeasure, hindering apprehension and false government documents.
Police said she presented a Millburn detective with a New York driver's license in the name of another person during the investigation, which led to her arrest.
