An ongoing investigation since March 22, when police received a call from Livingston’s Fresh Market regarding missing bails of cardboard that they leave in the rear of the store to be picked up by another company, came to an end last week with an arrest.

Livingston police said they recently received another call that a yellow truck had been seen coming into the back alley and removing the bails of cardboard without permission. Subsequent to investigation, Nicholas Carrasquillo, 22, of Paterson, was arrested and released on his own recognizance pending court action.

Arrests were also made with various charges on May 13 and May 14 at the Livingston Mall.

The first call from the Livingston Mall was about person being held in the parking lot by security for potentially being in possession of stolen property, according to police.

Upon police arrival, it was revealed that the individual possessed multiple items stolen from six different stores at the Livingston Mall. Subsequent to investigation, Robert Braswell, 33, of East Orange was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property and was released on his own recognizance pending court action.

The next afternoon, police received a call from both Lord & Taylor security and Livingston Mall security, whom were attempting to take an individual into custody who may have previously passed bad checks. Upon arrival, the female was fighting with security officers, according to police.

Ultimately, Latesha Shavers, 35, of Perth Amboy, was charged with assault and resisting arrest. Police said she had also been under investigation by Lord & Taylor security the previous week for passing bad checks.

Shavers was subsequently charged by Livingston police for passing bad checks and theft by deception on an incident that occurred on May 7. Following these charges, she was remanded to the Essex County Jail.
