WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Police have charged four men in separate incidents, all accused of stealing cash from the registers at their places of employment.
Isaiah Lyman, 20, stole $5,599 when conducting no-sale transactions at the boys clothing register at Nordstrom in the Westchester Mall, the store manager told police. Police reviewed video surveillance showing Lyman removing cash while opening the register in the mornings and at various other times during the day, according to the arrest report.
Lyman, of Ossining, was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a class E felony. He was held for court.
At the Galleria Mall, police arrested Raul Sanchez, 20, and charged him with petty larceny, a class A misdemeanor. The manager of Lids, a store in the Galleria, told police that video surveillance showed that Sanchez, of Port Chester, had pocketed money, conducted fraudulent refunds, canceled sales and handed merchandise to customers, all totaling $661. The manager said this happened between March 23 and May 15. Sanchez was also held for court.
Also at the Galleria, police arrested a Sears employee, who store security told police stole $310 while closing out his register. After separating the money from the deposit bag, the report says, Scott Shauger, 20, tried to leave but was stopped by security. Police arrested him on Friday, May 18, and charged him with petty larceny, a class A misdemeanor, and held him for court.
A fourth suspect was accused Saturday, May 19, of stealing $90 from multiple registers at Macy's in the Galleria Mall, where he worked. Store security told police they saw Colvin Mason, 21, of the Bronx take a $50 bill and two $20 bills from three registers around 10:40 a.m., then hide them in a Macy's coupon he was carrying before putting them in his pants pocket. Police arrested Mason, and he was released on $500 bail. He is scheduled to appear in City Court at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 23.
All four arrests were made on Friday and Saturday.
