TOWN OF LOCKPORT — A 38-year-old Drum Road man was charged Sunday with shoplifting from Walmart — twice in three days.

According to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office report, James J. Gould Jr., 2912 Drum Road, Hartland, was seen on store video around 9 p.m. on Dec. 26 concealing seven miscellaneous bottles of perfume inside of his jacket, then walking to the front of the store and out through the small cart access door to avoid the security sensors.

Walmart's loss prevention manager told NCSO that another male was seen to be selling said perfumes on Facebook. She knew the perfumes to be the same because she had made identifying marks on them.

As patrol was investigating the incident, they were told that Gould was back in the store and concealing more perfume. Patrol waiting outside for Gould to leave the store, which he did through the small cart access door again. Patrol stopped Gould and interviewed him. He admitted that he had just taken perfume from the store.

Patrol detained him and brought him back into Walmart and into the security office, where deputies located seven miscellaneous bottles of perfume inside his jacket and pants pockets. Patrol asked if he was in the store two days prior and took perfume, to which he replied "yes." He was asked what he does with the perfume, to which he said that he gives them to a friend that sells them, although he would not say who that friend was.

He was taken into custody and transported to the Niagara County Jail where he was held on $500 bail and ordered to appear in Town of Lockport Court on Jan. 6.

The case was forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Bureau for possible charges to be brought against the other male.
