RHINEBECK, N.Y. -- Two Poughkeepsie residents were charged with shoplifting and faking their identities after they were accused of stealing more than $1,569 worth of goods from Tops Supermarket in Rhinebeck, according to New York State Police.
The two, Justin J. Parker, 31, and Kimberly Brand, 27, were charged with petty larceny after troopers responded to the supermarket on Oct. 12 for a shoplifting complaint, state police said.
An investigation conducted by the responding officer revealed that Brand had stolen over $580 worth of razors, shaving cream and other over the counter medications. Parker reportedly stole $989 worth of merchandise from the store, police said.
During their arrest, the two supplied police with fictitious names, police said. As a result, arrest documents were created in the names of Sean Gillen and Jenna Brezovsky, state police said.
Several days later, it was learned that Brand and Parker were being held at the Dutchess County Jail for an unrelated matter. Troopers responded to the jail and charged them with the larceny charge in addition to offering a false instrument for providing fake names, state police said.
