On December 22, 2019 at 6:18 PM, the Lower Allen Township Police Department was dispatched to the Capital City Mall for an active retail theft. Mall Security advised two black males stole from the mall and were departing in a tan Ford Taurus bearing a Georgia registration.
The vehicle was located on Route 581 Eastbound off Route 15 North. The vehicle was stopped and the occupants were detained. The occupants were later identified as Jason Carter and Marlon Carter, two well-known retail theft suspects that have stolen from the mall frequently. Mall Security confirmed with employees from Victoria's Secret that they had a theft of perfume, items that these two frequently target. Video showed that the pair entered the store with empty shopping bags from other stores and departed with them full of items.
A search of the vehicle yielded $5,938.00 worth of perfume in various bags. A "booster bag" was also located, which is a plastic bag lined with tin foil, commonly used by shoplifters to avoid sensor detection when leaving stores. Both thieves were transported to CCP.
