Two people have been arrested for alleged organized retail theft across multiple states. Southbury Police were alerted to a shoplifting incident last Friday at HomeGoods in New Milford by a pair currently under investigation by the Southbury Police Department. Officers then responded to the HomeGoods in Southbury. Officers spotted a vehicle that matched the description of the suspect’s vehicle. 41-year old Jadion Richards and 42-year old Akwele Lawes-Richards were identified and arrested. They were found in possession of a large amount of fraudulent HomeGoods receipts, fake driver’s licenses from the Tri-state area, and a retail theft device. Southbury Police say they are suspected in thefts in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey.
