On May 29, Henry Cabezas, 50, of Beverly Road, removed merchandise totaling $6,000 from the Perfume Point kiosk inside the Garden City mall on Old Country Road after it was closed, police said.
Investigators connected Cabezas to five other larceny cases between May 30 and June 6 in which he took more than $1,000 in each heist from Microsoft, Solstice, Sunglass Hut and Davis Vision, according to a news release.
While on routine foot patrol at the mall Friday, officers from the Third Precinct spotted Cabezas exiting a store and recognized him, police said. Cabezas had been banned from the mall because of previous larcenies, police said. The officers stopped Cabezas and arrested him.
