A Richlandtown man is accused of stealing $17,000 from the 7-Eleven convenience store at 523 Richlandtown Pike in Richland Township over a period of about a year, township police said Wednesday.
According to a post published on the department’s Crimewatch website, Joshua Alicea, 27, is charged with one felony count of theft.
Court records indicate that the charge is a third-degree felony and list the alleged offense date as Nov. 29, 2018.
Neither the police statement nor court records indicate whether or not Alicea was an employee of the store at the time of the alleged theft.
