Stolen Goods Returned To Stores Following Arrests

Saint John Police getting more than they bargained for while responding to a shoplifting incident on the East side. 

Sergeant Jay Henderson says officers were called to a shop on Fashion Drive for a theft around noon on Tuesday but the suspects fled the scene. A 34-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman were pulled over on Prince Edward Street, where police found a large number of stolen goods from various shops on the East side. Henderson says they have been returned.

The two were arrested and face charges of theft, possession of stolen property and breaching previous court orders. Henderson says they are well known to the police department.
