Police are seeking information from the community in a shoplifting last week at Mobil Gas Station on Church Hill Road.
According to just-released reports, the shoplifting took place December 6 at about 7:30 p.m. Police say a light-skinned Hispanic man with dark, curly hair and a "skinny" beard walked into the gas station and asked where bread and milk were. After getting them, he allegedly asked the clerk for a carton of Newport 100 cigarettes.
After his credit card was declined, police say the man grabbed the carton and left the gas station in a "newer model silver Nissan Maxima with a sun roof and unknown plates."
Police say the man is about six feet tall and 220 pounds. He was wearing a black North Face fleece and blue jeans, according to reports.
Police ask anyone with information to contact Officer Figol of the Newton Police Department at 203-426-5841.
