Four people were arrested on shoplifting charges in two unrelated incidents Wednesday at the Macy's department store TC in Marley Station, county police said.
In the first incident, three men entered the store shortly before 8 p.m. and picked out Polo clothes from store displays.
They took the clothing to the fitting room, but when they walked out, employees could not find the items, police said.
The men left without buying anything, but a police officer stopped them outside and questioned them, police said.
The three had stuffed the merchandise under clothing they were wearing, police said.
Adeyemi Bennett, 20, of Stamford, Conn.; Cedric Anthony Joyner, 19, of the 1700 block of E. Cold Spring Lane in Baltimore; and Shawn Eric Hall, 19, of the first block of Neptune Court in Baltimore County were arrested and charged with theft, police said.
All were released yesterday on their own recognizance, authorities said.
In the second shoplifting incident, a store security officer told police that a man entered the store about 10 p.m., took six pieces of children's clothing from a store display, put them on top of a baby stroller he was pushing and walked out of the store, police said.
The officer stopped the man outside the store and held him for police. Loquann E. Harrison, 22, of the first block of Solar Circle in Baltimore County was charged with theft.
Mr. Harrison was released yesterday on his own recognizance, officials said.
