East Lampeter Township Police are looking for a man they say tried to pilfer nearly $800 worth of Nicorette gum and Gillette razors from the Target on Covered Bridge Road Wednesday afternoon. Target Loss Prevention reported that the suspect concealed 16 boxes of Nicorette gum and four packs of Gillette razors with a total retail value of $795.84 in a trash bag. Loss prevention personnel confronted the suspect as he attempted to leave the store. The suspect dropped the merchandise and ran out of the store. He left the Target parking lot in a black Mitsubishi coupe.
Police say may have pulled off similar retail thefts at Target stores in Philadelphia, Harrisburg and New Jersey. Anyone with information is asked to contact ELTPD Officer Doug Jaquith (717) 291-4676.
