New England man arrested for conspiracy of theft at Merrimack Outlets
MERRIMACK — A Massachusetts man surrendered himself after police determined he conspired to carry out thefts at the Merrimack Premium Outlets.
According to police, Malik A. Malcolm, 20 from Milton, Massachusetts, conspired with Frank Dempsey, 20, a Polo employee at the Merrimack Premium Outlets, to deprive the store of product and profits through selling items at an unauthorized discount or not properly scanning items at the register during transactions.
After officers determined Malcolm was a part of the conspiracy, they obtained a warrant for his arrest.
On June 20, Malcolm surrendered himself to Merrimack Police. He is scheduled to appear before the Merrimack Circuit Court on July 27 to answer to receiving stolen property charges.
On May 2, Dempsey was arrested and charged with theft and criminal liability for conduct of another. Dempsey also facilitated the thefts from the store by employing three others, including Malcolm, to take items from the store as he manipulated the cash register to ring up a lessor amount, thereby depriving the store of monies owed, police said.
