Maplewood Man Arrested, Accused of Stealing Liquor from Newark Airport Restaurant

Newark NJ Burglary SuspectNewark NJ police arrested a Maplewood man who allegedly stole a large quantity of liquor from an airport restaurant.

The 29-year-old suspect is accused of stealing multiple bottles of liquor from the Caliente Cab Company restaurant located in Terminal C of Newark Liberty International Airport.

Police believe that the suspect committed the thefts on at least three visits to the restaurant. According to authorities, the liquor stolen by the suspect was worth in excess of $3,000.

The suspect was seen leaving the airport establishment during the early morning hours; he allegedly had several bottles in his possession.

Newark police were soon alerted to the possible theft. The ensuing investigation led Newark detectives to conclude that the suspect had also committed similar thefts on two prior occasions.

During the course of the investigation, Newark authorities learned that the suspect had pending criminal charges in multiple courts, including Essex County Superior Court and Newark Municipal Court.

The suspect was eventually tracked down when he appeared for his court date in Newark’s local municipal court.

After being arrested, the suspect was charged with several offenses, including burglary, theft, and criminal trespassing.

If the suspect is convicted on the theft charges, he could be subject to significant punishments. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:20-3, theft of movable property valued at more than $500 is classified as a third degree felony. This means that the suspect can potentially be sentenced to 3–5 years in New Jersey State Prison.

While awaiting a court date for these latest charges, the suspect is being held at the Essex County Correctional Facility on $35,000 bond.
