A Clarence man charged with shoplifting items from a Dick’s Sporting Goods Store on Transit Road was nabbed by State Police late Saturday after his waiting ride took off without him.
State Police charged Michael J. Husarek outside the store and said they recovered some of the merchandise.
Troopers had received a report about 8:45 p.m. that a man had stolen approximately $100 in merchandise from the sporting goods store. They responded and said they found Husarek, who was unable to leave the scene after his ride left without him.
Husarek was arrested and issued a Clarence Town Court appearance ticket for a later date.
