June 15, 1994

...TC A man charged with stealing more than $200 worth of goods from the Rag Shop in the Cromwell Fields Shopping Center Monday morning was caught at the light rail station across the street, police said.

David Taylor, 44, of the 1100 block of Argyle Ave. was charged with theft under $300.

At 9:39 a.m., an employee of the McCrory store next to the Rag Shop told police she saw a man wearing a white T-shirt and black pants run from the Rag Shop toward the light rail station.

The man carried nothing into the Rag Shop, but allegedly left with several items, police said.

Police checked the light rail station and saw a man fitting the description get off the train.

The officer questioned the man, searched the light rail car and found two bags of merchandise from the Rag Shop under the suspect's seat, police said. The man had no receipt for the goods, which included 54 caps worth $148 and 13 tank tops worth about $58, police said.

The officer took the suspect back to the Rag Shop, where two employees confirmed that the suspect had been there but had not bought anything, police said.

The suspect was taken to the Northern District and charged.
