Cops: Shoplifter Said 'But I Only Stole Lip Gloss'

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Police said a Bronx woman who helped stuff $90.89 worth of Wal-Mart goods under a jacket seemed shocked when greeted by officers, who reported she said, "but, I only stole lip gloss," according to the arrest report.

Officers were called to the Main Street Wal-Mart Wednesday evening to pick up Diniece Scott, 18, of Irvington, N.J., and Chanelle Stewart, 21, of the Bronx. Wal-Mart staff told cops the duo had hid 14 cosmetic items, Fruit of the Loom boxers and thermal bottoms, a purse, thermal bottoms, and a hand bag before leaving the store, police said.

Stewart's proclamation that she only swiped lip gloss didn't seem to sway officers. Police arrested and charged both women with one count of petit larceny, a misdemeanor.

Other news from the police blotter includes:

- Officers arrested and charged a Valhalla man after finding what they said appears to be crack-cocaine in his pocket early Wednesday afternoon.

Police said Anthony Carollo, 48, pacing up and down E. Post Road first caught their attention because Carollo kept "nervously" scanning Denison Avenue as if looking for someone.

Moments later Carollo spotted another man, who he briefly met in the doorway of 14 E. Post Rd. The pair split ways, and officers caught up with Carollo near the intersection of Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard and Quarropas Street.

Once stopped, Carollo immediately told police, "it's in my front left pants pocket," according to police reports.

Officers confiscated a plastic bag containing what they believe to be crack-cocaine and arrested and charged Carollo with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanor.

- Police responded to a report of a disturbance in an 2 Eastview Ave. apartment early Wednesday morning and wound up arresting a White Plains resident who had what officers said appeared to be cocaine in his shorts pocket.

Officers arrived at 2 Eastview Ave. at approximately 5 a.m. Wednesday and began talking with three occupants of an upper level apartment in the hallway. When police began entering the apartment, Maximino Quintero, 19, tried to dart out the back door, according to police reports.

Officers stopped him and said they discovered a small glass envelope containing what they believe was cocaine in his pocket.

Quintero was arrested and charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.
