14-Year-Old Teens Caught Shoplifting

Two teenagers from Philadelphia were arrested Black Friday morning by Upper Moreland police after stealing merchandise from various local retail stores.

Upper Moreland police report that two 14-year-old female teens shoplifted from various stores Friday morning taking close to $430.

The manager of the Five Below in Upper Moreland spotted the teens stealing and called the police.

When the two girls noticed police were on to them they tried to run but police gave chase and caught both of the young suspects.

Police say one of the teens was already on probation in for a previous robbery in the township.

The two teen were charged with retail theft, criminal conspiracy and receiving stolen property.

Man Arrested for Disorderly & Theft

Shortly after the two teens were arrested Upper Moreland police were called to the Burger King near police headquarters after a man came into the store demanding free food and would not leave.

Police who had already responded to two previous calls about Vergus Joe Davis, 52, no fixed address, noticed this time he was wearing a brand new outfit he did not have on earlier in the morning.

Davis who was cursing in the fast food restaurant refused to tell police where he got the brand new clothes he was wearing.

Police soon after discovered that Davis stole the clothes from the Modell’s Sportswear store across the street.

Police arrested the suspect and charged him with defiant trespass, retail theft, receiving stolen property and disorderly conduct.

Bail for Davis was set at 10 percent of $5000.
