The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of two individuals following an investigation at the Canandaigua Walmart.
According to a news release, Kyle Carey, 21, of Geneva, and Eric Shafer, 18, of Canandaigua were arrested after a shoplifting complaint from the store.
Carey was found to have stolen merchandise valued around $32 and concealed it while fleeing staff in the parking lot. Share was found to have stolen more than $50 worth of merchandise.
Both passed all points of sale without rendering payment. Carey had an active trespass ban from Walmart and was subsequently arrested for third-degree burglary. He was released to answer the charge at a later date.
Shafer was ticketed for petit larceny. That charge will also be answered at a later date in local court.
