Loss Prevention personnel at the Rite Aid on McGrath Hwy. detained a man last Friday for allegedly shoplifting in the store. Investigating police officers were told that the man, Mark Delia, 39, of E. Boston, was observed stuffing several items into his backpack.
After being confronted, Delia was taken to the office, where Loss Prevention agents allegedly retrieved several items belonging to Rite Aid from the man’s backpack. These items consisted of charger packs and several headphones, with a reported value totaling $147.29.
A check of Delia’s record revealed several previous shoplifting charges, according to police. He was placed under arrest and charged with shoplifting by concealing merchandise.
