charged a Lakehurst man with shoplifting from a borough convenience store Wednesday after a clerk suspected that goods were hidden in his pockets during checkout.
Dakota J. Peterson, 20, was attempting to pay for an energy drink at the cashier counter when "the clerk became suspicious that he was concealing stolen items from the store in his pants pockets," said Sgt. Ronald Heinzman in a statement.
Officer Stephen Gallo responded to the scene and recovered five packages of Extenze "male enhancement" pills, a bag containing other items "for personal use," and a bag holding pistachios and pumpkin seeds, Heinzman said.
Gallo issued the charge to Peterson, who is scheduled to appear in Lakehurst municipal court on Aug. 22, according to Heinzman.
