Lower Saucon Township Police said Friday that a Giant Food Store employee has been charged with theft.
According to a post on the department’s Crimewatch site, Malik Selanne Thomas, 19, of Hellertown, was taken into custody by the store’s asset protection department Tuesday, after it was learned that he’d allegedly stolen $400 from a store cash register over a period of six days.
Police said they then took Thomas into custody and transported him to department headquarters, where he allegedly admitted to stealing the cash from the register.
Following a preliminary arraignment before District Judge Roy Manwaring Tuesday night on misdemeanor charges of theft and receiving stolen property, Thomas was released on $2,500 unsecured bail, according to county court records.
A preliminary hearing before District Judge Alan Mege in Lower Saucon Township is scheduled for June 10 at 9 a.m., according to records.
