Police arrested a 25-year-old man from the Bronx after he allegedly robbed the Darien CVS of high-end shampoo for the second time since last month.
On December 27, 2016, a suspect police later identified as Luis Medina, stole around $3,000 worth of salon shampoo from CVS, police said. A store employee was able to provide police with the license plate number of the car Medina drove away in, allowing police to trace the vehicle.
Around 8:00 a.m. on January 13, 2017, the manager of CVS called police to report more high-end shampoo and hair products were stolen from the store by a man. The manager gave a description of the suspect and said he’d left the store, ran across the street to the train station and entered a taxi.
The first officer to respond to the station found several taxis in line, but only the first taxi was occupied. The officer approached the right, rear passenger door of the taxi and saw the man inside matched the suspect’s description.
Police identified the suspect as Medina, of Marion Avenue in Bronx. CVS surveillance footage showed Medina taking around 15 hair products off a shelf and hiding them in his loose-fitting pants. Officers recovered the items in Medina’s pants after placing him under arrest and searching him.
