PLAINVILLE — A Hartford teen faces charges after police said he and a juvenile attempted to steal more than $500 worth of merchandise from Kohl’s in December.
Zhiquan Wooding, 18, of 555 Wethersfield Ave., was charged by warrant on Monday with risk of injury to a minor, fifth-degree larceny, criminal impersonation, interfering with police and conspiracy to commit fifth-degree larceny. It was not clear if the juvenile was charged.
On Dec. 22, police responded to Kohl’s for a report of suspected shoplifting, according to Wooding’s arrest warrant.
Police spoke with two suspects, who when questioned, both removed items concealed in backpacks, the warrant said. One suspect was later identified as Wooding.
The items were valued at about $570.
Wooding was held on bond, arraigned in Bristol Superior Court on Monday, and released on a promise to appear in court on April 17.
