HYDE PARK, N.Y. -- A Hyde Park man has been charged with shoplifting at the Walmart Superstore in the Town of Ulster, police said.
Joshua S. Richter, 32, was arrested at the store on Thursday, Feb. 25, police said.
Store security said that Richter left the Ulster County store without paying for $51.40 worth of merchandise, police said.
The arresting officer reported finding suboxone, a medication used to treat opiate addiction.
Because Richter didn’t have a prescription for the medication, he was charged with seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, police said.
He also faces charges of petit larceny, a misdemeanor, police said.
Richter was ticketed, released, and ordered to appear in the Town of Ulster Justice Court at a later date, police said.
