Boston man faces third shoplifting offense
Fred G. Johnson, 52, of 42 Lyons St., Boston, failed to appear in Quincy District Court for arraignment on a charge of third-offense shoplifting by concealing merchandise. The court issued a default warrant seeking Johnson's arrest.
The charge stems from an Oct. 18, 2011 incident in Braintree at 6:25 p.m. when police were dispatched to Kmart, 350 Grossman Drive, in response to a report of a shoplifter. Police said Johnson is accused of concealing $90 worth of Country Living sheets using a book bag and then leaving the store after passing all points of sale.
