West Windsor Police: Two men used stolen U-Haul to shoplift


Two Trenton men face multiple charges for allegedly using a stolen U-Haul truck to attempt to “haul away” stolen merchandise from Marshalls on May 3, according to the West Windsor Police Department.

The men were charged with receiving stolen property and shoplifting after police responded to a call for a shoplifting in progress at the store at the Windsor Green shopping center.

Police officers observed one of the men allegedly loading a cart full of women’s handbags into the U-Haul truck and then covering them with women’s clothing, while the other man acted as a lookout, police said.

During the investigation, it was determined that the U-Haul truck had been reported stolen from Trenton, police said. The truck was valued at $120,000.

Police also discovered that one man had four outstanding warrants from Trenton and one outstanding warrant from Ewing Township. The other man had outstanding warrants from Trenton and West Windsor Township.

The men were processed and taken to the Mercer County Correction Center.
