UTICA – Utica Police and New York State Troopers searched through the North Utica marsh early Wednesday afternoon looking for a man accused of shoplifting from Walmart.
NewsChannel 2’s reporter on the scene spotted law enforcement in action and caught the whole ordeal on camera.
Utica Police tell us the man, identified as 33-year-old Joseph Cittadino of Utica, allegedly stole from the nearby Walmart near Horatio Street and River Road, then ran away from the store.
Police found him hiding under the ramp to Route 12 south, across from River Road.
Cittadino yelled obscenities at our reporter and said "I stole a speaker."
Police say Cittadino is charged with petit larceny.
