Harrison Police arrested a Newark man Tuesday for taking numerous food and cleaning products from a rear aisle of Quick Check, then leaving the store without paying.
Tyler Williams was carrying a large black and white plastic bag with the stolen items.
They included two bags of Chips Ahoy cookies, two bags of Keebler cookies, three packets of Cheez-It crackers, nine packages of Welch’s fruit snack, four bars of Dove soap, a bottle of Gain laundry detergent and a bottle of Febreeze spray — totaling $70.
The proceeds were photographed and returned to the store.
When officers asked Williams about the contents of the bag he admitted he had stolen them because he was unemployed and hungry.
The 51-year-old was charged with shoplifting and expected in Harrison Court on July 27.
He also has a warrant out of Bloomfield in the amount of $1,574 with a July 26 court date.
