N.J. College Student Charged For Stealing $1.80 Worth Of Ice From Cafeteria

23 Mar

A Brookdale Community College student charged with stealing a cup of ice from the school cafeteria will fight this disorderly person’s offense in municipal court Monday.

Cedric Calero, 18, of Manalapan and his family are dumbfounded as to why the manager of the school cafeteria would call the police after his taking a cup of ice without permission on Jan. 31.

“I don’t know why they would want to brand him a criminal when all he did was take a cup of ice,” Sharon Jardine, of Keyport, said about her son.

According to the police report, Calero reached over the food service counter when the cashier was not present and took an empty soda cup. He “then filled the cup at the self-service station with ice and possibly a beverage and left the area without paying for the product.” The beverage would have cost $1.80. Read the whole story here.
