Razor thief nabbed by alert store employee

On Tuesday, February 23 police arrested a Pomona man after he was caught stealing razors from Stater Brothers, the second time he has been arrested for the same crime. Police say Allen Pool, 61, entered the supermarket at approximately 3:15 p.m. and went directly to aisle ten, where he shoved a number of razor packets into his pants and walked out of the store. Employees recognized Mr. Pool from previous encounters and called police. Once they found him, officers observed Mr. Pool reaching into his pants pockets and throwing the razor packages on the ground, according to Lt. Mike Ciszek. He reportedly told police, “What are those? What are you talking about, I didn’t steal those.” Mr. Pool was arrested for shoplifting and sent to CPD jail. He had been arrested for the same crime on February 11 and was suspected in two other razor thefts at the same location.
