SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio — Two Cleveland men were arrested for shoplifiting on Monday.

South Euclid police said the 59-year-old man stole $442.74 of merchandise from Foot Locker in Oakwood Commons. This was the 140th time he was arrested.

Police said they arrested a 50-year-old man for shoplifting an electric razor from Walmart, but also decided he wanted to steal a bicycle.

The 50-year-old was arrested for the 43rd time.

He told police that officers need to build a police station in the Walmart parking lot to prevent him from stealing.

If these guys have been arrested more than 150 times combined for shoplifting, they either have gotten away with stealing a lot more or are terrible at it.
