WESTPORT — A New York man allegedly stole more than $500 of hair care products from a Westport pharmacy in December.
The 25-year-old man — previously arrested for a similar theft in Darien — stuffed 20 hair-care products into his pockets Dec. 26 at a CVS Pharmacy, located at 397 Post Road East, police said. Store employees called the police department several days after $583 in items went missing, according to police, and officers then identified Luis Medina on surveillance video.
Medina, a resident of Marion Avenue in the Bronx, was arrested Feb. 3 and charged with fifth-degree larceny. Detectives identified Medina from the video footage and his arrest for a similar shoplifting in Darien, police said, and the 25-year-old then confessed in an interview.
