ALLENDALE, N.J. – Barely 45 minutes after being released from custody for shoplifting a bottle of vodka from one store in Allendale, a plumber from Waldwick swiped a bottle of rum from another, said police who arrested him a second time.

Irme Gazso, 44, was picked up just before 3 p.m. last Thursday after an employee at the Rite Aid on Wes Allendale Avenue said he walked out with the strawberry lemonade vodka and a can of Coke under his jacket, Police Chief George Scherb said.

After they processed and released him from headquarters on shoplifting charges, Gazso snatched a bottle of rum from Allendale Wine Shoppe – just up the street from the Rite Aid, Scherb said.

Responding officers spotted Gazso a short time later walking toward Waldwick, the chief said.

Gaszo “was again placed under arrest and brought to police HQ, charged with this shoplifting and given the same court date,” Scherb said. “After being charged, [he] was driven to his home, where officers escorted him to the front door and watched him enter.”
