Three people have been arrested for a shoplifting incident in Oxford which went viral. The video outside Market 32 showed three people quickly tossing bottles of laundry detergent and paper towels into two vehicles and speeding away as onlookers gathered in the parking lot. State Police say 911 wasn't called until 10 minutes later despite the police station being just down the road.
44-year old James Hill, 51-year old Nasif Muhammad and 36-year old Brandy Quadrato, all of New Haven, have been charged with larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny. State Police say they suspect the shoplifting ring has targeted about a dozen stores across Connecticut, including stealing several tvs from a Wallingford BJ's.
Each was held on $50,000 bond. A 4th suspect has not yet been publicly identified and the investigation is ongoing. One of the two vehicles used in the Oxford crime has been recovered and State Police say neither was stolen.
The estimated value of good stolen from Maket 32 was just over $1,600.
