Newark man arrested in Home Depot shoplifting scheme

WOODBRIDGE, NJ June 12 2017 — A Newark man was arrested Wednesday and charged with shoplifting more than $1,000 worth of items from the Woodbridge Home Depot on St. Georges Avenue.

Will Jordon, 56, was stopped by store security at 5:45 p.m. with two Dewalt 20V max lithium ion batteries, each worth $598, as well as two shower heads valued at $196 each.
He took the items off the shelf and then tried to return them for cash at the register, store security said.
When a store employee refused to do the return, he tried to walk out the store without paying for them and store security stopped and detained him.
He was arrested by arriving police officers.
