Police: Man attempts to steal $1,000 in cosmetics

ANDOVER — Police say a man who attempted to steal an estimated $1,000 worth of cosmetic products from the CVS Pharmacy at 68 Main St. this week may be a suspect in similar shoplifting incidents throughout the area.

Merchandise stolen in Monday's incident at the Andover store was recovered, according to Police Lt. Edward Guy.

"Once he was confronted, he ended up dropping the merchandise and fleeing on foot," Guy said.

"The manager at CVS believes this person has been stealing CVS products from stores in nearby towns," he said.

Yesterday, North Andover police detectives conferred with Andover about a shoplifting incident at the CVS store at 115 Main St. shortly before 11 a.m.

"Based on the description they have and the surveillance photos we have, it appears it's the same person involved," Lt. Guy said.

Police have not yet identified the suspect, but have described him as wearing a red Chicago Bulls baseball cap, red sneakers, blue jeans and a gray T-shirt.
