Two Northern Westchester teens were arrested for allegedly stealing nearly $300 worth of merchandise from the Macy's at Jefferson Valley Mall.
The duo from Croton-on-Hudson, both 17 years old, were arrested on Monday, Nov. 16, by the Yorktown Police after officers responded to the store for a report of shoplifting, said the Yorktown Police.
According to police, police responded to the store around 3:24 p.m., but the teens had fled the area before officers arrived.
An investigation, which found the teens allegedly took merchandise valued at $283.98, led to the teens who voluntarily turned themselves in at the Yorktown Police Department.
They were both charged with petit larceny/juvenile delinquency and issued an appearance ticket to appear at the Westchester Department of Probation on Wednesday, Dec. 2.
