A Macy's employee was arrested Monday afternoon for allegedly attempting to steal eight t-shirts from the Mall at Short Hills store, Millburn police said.
Samuel Bernard, 22, of Maplewood was arrested for shoplifting at about 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 18.
According to the report, Bernard was seen by security putting four INC shirts under his jacket prior to leaving for his break.
Macy's security told police Bernard put the four shirts in his car.
At about 5 p.m., Bernard tried to hide four more INC shirts under his jacket and leave the store again, the report said.
Security stopped Bernard from leaving the store the second time and retrieved the stolen shirts from his car.
Bernard was arrested and released pending a municipal court date in Millburn, police said.
