UTICA, NY – On March 20, Utica Police units were dispatched to the North Utica Walmart regarding a larceny investigation.
Loss Prevention Associates informed the officers that a male had loaded a cart with high value items and then abandoned the cart near an exit. The male then returned inside the store, purchased two loaves of bread and re-approached the cart near the doors. The male then exited store, passing all points of purchase with the full cart of items.
As Loss Prevention attempted to stop the male, he fled on foot, ultimately entering into a dark SUV which sped from the parking lot.
As the value of the stolen items totaled over $1095 the investigation was assigned to a member of the Criminal Investigations Division. In conjunction with the Mohawk Valley Crime Analysis Center and the aid of fellow officers, the suspect in question was identified as Jerome Cisson age 57 of Utica.
Contact was made with Cisson and on April 26th, 2022 he turned himself in and was charged with Grand Larceny in the fourth degree.
