On Monday, September 14, 2020, at 6:07 PM, The Ridley Township Police Department received a call in reference to a retail theft at Pet Supplies Plus which is located at 1300 West MacDade Blvd. in the Woodlyn section of the township. Upon arrival, the owner advised that BYRON BOLDEN entered the store accompanied by four children who all appeared to be under the age of ten. BOLDEN is known to the owner due to the fact that this is his third case of retail theft at the store. The Ridley Township Police had previously advised BOLDEN that he was no longer permitted in the store.
BOLDEN was captured on surveillance footage during the course of the crimes. The children were directed by BOLDEN to place specific items in their backpack. The group worked in conjunction with one another and attempted to conceal their nefarious activities from the cameras (unsuccessfully). Due to the age of the children, we will not reveal the footage at this time.
If anyone knows the current whereabouts of BYRON BOLDEN please contact The Ridley Township Detectives (610)532-4002 or simply leave a tip on CRIMEWATCH.
