The Bedford Police Department responded to a Nov. 27 call from store security at T.J. Maxx reporting that they had detained a shoplifter, according to Detective Lieutenant Scott Jones of BPD.
Shaunte Ferguson, last known address of 27 Wolcott Street in Boston, was placed under arrest by BPD after attempting to take wallets, shoes and clothing, according to Jones.
There is no connection between Ferguson's Nov. 27 arrest and the BPD investigation of three recent instances of shoplifting at T.J. Maxx, all committed by the same suspect.Looking for updates on Bedford education? Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
