On 11/27/13 at about 1:51a.m., the Newton Police Department received a phone call from employees at the Quick Check on Sparta Avenue reporting that a white male wearing a black jacket and grey sweatpants had concealed on his person an unknown quantity of merchandise and had left the business without paying.
Subsequent investigation by the police resulted in officers being able to locate and identify the actor at a friend’s residence at Gateway Apartments. As a result, Kyle E. Morris, age 23, a homeless male, was charged with a disorderly persons offense of shoplifting after officers located $26.46 worth of stolen merchandise from Quick Check within the apartment. The stolen items consisted of energy drinks, beef jerky, ice cream, coffee and danish.
Additionally, a $250.00 warrant out of Green Township Joint Municipal Court was also confirmed with the Court and he was turned over to the New Jeresey State Police for further processing.
