MOONACHIE, P.D. -- Moonachie police made their 42nd arrest of the year in Teterboro last week -- another accused shoplifter.
Danielle Smith, 38, of Moonachie loaded a shopping cart with $371.13 worth of merchandise and walked out of the Walmart on Route 46 without paying before security officers intercepted her, Detective Anthony Fugnitti said Monday.
She was processed at headquarters and released on a court summons.
Moonachie police made 45 Teterboro arrests all of last year.
Before Walmart and Costco opened in Teterboro, Moonachie police averaged seven to 14 arrests a year out of the southern end of the tiny borough. Staffing is a huge issue , all agree.
