Brooklyn Man Steals $6,000 of Apple Store Merchandise from the Mall at Short Hills

MILLBURN, NJ — Millburn’s January’s police blotter featured two shoplifting incidents.

On January 13, Millburn Police Officer Salemi responded to Nordstrom at the Mall at Short Hills for a report of theft. Store associates told him that an employee, Deja Davis, age 30 of East Orange created a fraudulent return of a merchandise to a gift card, valued at $435. Salemi arrested Deja and charged her with theft by deception. She was later released on her own recognizance.

The next day, Millburn officers Griffin, Lyons, Jezewski and Salemi reported to the Mall at Short Hills on a report of a theft at the Apple Store. Associates reported that a Hispanic male wearing black sweatpants and a puffy vest stole $606.90 of merchandise from Apple and left the store without paying. Lyons, Griffin and Salemi found a suspect matching the description in the parking lot. They stopped the driver, Giorgi Mtchedlidz, age 41, of Brooklyn, and found over $6,000 of stolen Apple products in it. Mtchedlidze was charged with shoplifting, receiving stolen property, possession of drug paraphernalia and later released on his own recognizance.

These are accusations. All defendants are presumed innocent unless they enter a guilty plea or are found guilty in a court of law.
