Retail Theft charges have been filed against Scott Pess Wentzel, age 27, of Denver, following an incident at Kmart in Ephrata Township on 1/14/18. Store employees and customers observed Wentzel carry a large TV valued at $400 from the store without paying for it. The TV was still wrapped in the security spider wrapping. Wentzel loaded the TV into a waiting SUV and jumped into the back. As the SUV sped away the TV fell out of the vehicle and was recovered by Kmart. An employee took photos of the fleeing vehicle. Police determined the license plate from the photos which led to Wentzel’s identification. Wentzel will receive a court summons for the retail theft charge.
