PARSIPPANY — Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Officer Clarence DeLoatch was outside of Marshalls, 3101 Route 46, when he observed a male, identified as Gregory Calvo, 47, Union City, exit through the entrance of the store with a suitcase.

As Mr. Calvo exited the store, Officer DeLoatch observed what appeared to be an electronic security device attached to it, and also heard the audible alarm sounding inside the doorway of the store.

He then spoke to Mr. Calvo and after a brief investigation approximately $1466 worth of merchandise was found inside the suitcase. Mr. Calvo was placed under arrest and transported back to police headquarters. He was charged with one count of Third Degree Shoplifting.

He was remanded to the Morris County Correctional Facility pending his initial court appearance.
