Town of Poughkeepsie Police arrested a 19-year-old man for allegedly stealing more than $1.000 worth of merchandise from a Macy's.

Elija M. Collins, of Troy, was arrested on Friday, May 17, after officers were called to the store at 2001 South Road, about a shoplifter who left the store and fled in a vehicle, said Town of Poughkeepsie Police Capt. Kevin Faber.

Responding officers located Collins' vehicle on Route 9 and upon stopping it, they allegedly found more than $1,000 worth of stolen merchandise from the store on the rear passenger seat, Faber said.

Upon a further investigation, police determined he had also allegedly stolen more than $850 worth of merchandise from the same store on April 20, Faber added.
