MOONACHIE, N.J. -- Moonachie police who arrested an accused Costco shoplifter-turned-armed robber brought additional charges against him after Walmart officials recognized him from a theft.
Tuan Vo, 38, of Little Ferry remained held on $100,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, where he was brought following his arrest earlier this month.
In that case, Moonachie police said, Vo pulled a knife on a security guard at the Teterboro Costco who tried to stop him and a female accomplice from boosting a television.
Both bolted out an emergency fire door and fled using a hired car service to flee, Detective Sgt. Anthony Fugnitti told Daily Voice at the time.
Security got the license plate number and gave it to police, Fugnitti said.
Detectives then tracked the Little Ferry couple down, he said.
On Monday, Walmart officials contacted police, who they said shoplifted a 48-inch flat screen TV, a Sony PlayStation 3 console and a portable DVD player -- worth a combined $736.88.
Moonachie police served Vo with the complaint at the jail, where he remained held on $100,000 bail.
