RARITAN TWP., NJ - Police arrested Adam Favereaux, 30, of Flemington and Dani Linton, 45, of Philadelphia, and charged each with shoplifting from Walmart on Route 31.

Police were initially called to the store parking lot around 8:30 p.m. Dec. 19 on a report of a red SUV parked with two males in the area of it, one of whom was lying on the ground. When police arrived, they found the SUV parked in the lot and learned it was registered to Favereaux, but no one was found near the SUV.

Police said that a short time later they saw two males, matching the description of the initial report, as they left the store through the garden center entrance “in a hurried manner.” One of the males was pushing a shopping cart with a flat screen television box on top of it, police said.

The two males got into Favereaux’s vehicle with the television, but police approached and stopped them to investigate before Favereaux could drive away, according to police.

Further investigation revealed that the television was from the Walmart store and Favereaux and Linton could not provide proof of purchase, police said.

Favereaux was released after processing. Linton was found to have an active $500 traffic warrant for his arrest from Raritan Township Municipal Court. His bail was set at $1,000 with a 10 percent cash option on the shoplifting charge, and he was released after posting bail.

The television, a 55-inch LG valued at $746.86, was returned to Walmart. The investigation and arrests were by Patrolman William Cialone.

This information was provided by police and the subjects are presumed innocent. If notified of changes to the charges or their outcome, Tap into Flemington-Raritan will update this report.
