Violent Shoplifting

Three men were arrested on robbery charges following a late-night shoplifting incident at Jubilee Market Place on February 8, police said. The three entered the John Street store and began taking energy drinks from a refrigerator, placing them into a white bin, according to police. When the trio of shoplifters, later identified by police as Jonathan Lopez, 25, Bilal Johnson, 20, and Steven Sparrow, 25, tried to leave the store without paying, two store employees intervened and held one of the men back while two others of the trio fled. The third was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment, police said. Lopez, Johnson and Sparrow were arrested on February 9 and 10.
