YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: The boyfriend of a Hackensack Target cashier was charged with robbery after he pushed a security guard while fleeing a theft that the two of them engineered, police said this morning.
Jillian Mendoza, 19, of Ridgefield Park gave her boyfriend $1,800 in change that he wasn’t entitled to during no fewer than five separate small purchases, Detective Capt. Thomas Salcedo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
A security guard interrupted them just before 6 o’clock last night and 23-year-old Alexander Ramos of Englewood pushed his way past.
The 5-foot-6-inch, 156-pound Ramos was being held on $10,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with robbery.
Mendoza was charged with theft and released on summons pending a Municipal Court hearing.
