Police arrested two men and one woman in three shoplifting incidents over the weekend in Millburn-Short Hills, authorities said Monday.
In the first of the three incidents, a 50-year-old Newark man, Rafael Cuevas, was arrested Friday afternoon for swiping $279 in wireless headphones from the Apple Store, according to Capt. Bernie Neuhaus.
After an investigation, officers recognized Cuevas from a previous shoplifting incident from the Georgio Armani store on Sept. 28 when $450 pair of shoes went missing, Neuhaus said.
Cuevas was charged at 2 p.m. with both shoplifting incidents and was released pending a court date in Newark.
An hour later, Millburn Police arrested Frank Wiley, 39, of Irvington, for attempting to steal $37 in Advil from ShopRite on Main Street, according to reports.
Wiley was charged with shoplifting and was released pending a court date at Millburn Municipal Court.
On Saturday, a 46-year-old Annandale woman, Maria Amorim, attempted to steal $356 in clothing form Saks Fifth Avenue at The Mall at Short Hills just after 2 p.m., Neuhaus said.
According to Neuhasu, Amorim tried to hide two pieces of clothing as she walked out of the store without paying.
Amorim was charged and released with a court date in Newark.
