A repeat shoplifter was arrested Wednesday after police reported he tried to take $15 in merchandise from the 7-Eleven at 782 Elmwood Ave.
The incident occurred at around 10:30 p.m. after the suspect entered the store and was observed slipping store items into a black bag, police said.
The clerk confronted the individual and a struggle ensued, police said. The suspect, who had been warned previously not to return to the store, gave police the pseudonym "Edwin Pagan."
His name was not immediately available.
