Shoplifting Attempt Foiled in Brick, Say Police

A $639 laptop is costing a Toms River 32-year-old at least $100,000 – because, according to police in Brick Township, it still belonged to the store when they found him with it.

Gregory R. Ferrentino’s bail was set at $100,000 after his arrest at the Brick Township Wal-Mart Monday. According to investigators, he used pliers to sever the cable holding a Toshiba laptop in place and stuffed it in his jacket.

Police said Ferrentino entered into a struggle with loss-prevention officers who accosted him at the exit.

Patrol officers also arrested Ferrentino’s companion Robin Lomboy, 42, of Lakewood, who they reported to be in possession of a hypodermic needle.

Ferrentino was remanded to the Ocean County Jail in Toms River on charges of shoplifting, robbery, possession of burglary tools and possession of a hypodermic needle. Lomboy was given summonses for possessing and discarding a needle and littering.
