Erica Snow, Assistant City Editor

A man stole more than $850 in merchandise from CVS Pharmacy, 101 Asbury St., on Monday, police said.

Police said an employee knew his name from a previous theft, so detectives will follow up on the case, Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The suspect took razors and Rogaine, as seen on the security footage.

Officers were dispatched to the store at about 9:54 a.m. after an employee noticed a subject leave with merchandise without paying for it and drive away in a grey Subaru, Dugan said.

Two men arrested in connection with Oct. 13 crime

Police have arrested two men in connection with a battery charge from Oct. 13, police said.

Dugan said the two men fled in a car after they took keys, a hat and a bandana from the 20-year-old victim. The victim told police he had an ongoing problem with the men. Both were charged with battery, a misdemeanor.
