A Luzerne County man was arrested for retail theft at a Schuylkill County store on Wednesday, Nov. 6, and ended up jailed on an outstanding warrant.
State police at Frackville said James Edward Davis Jr., 21, of Hazleton, was stopped by store security at the Sears store in the Schuylkill Mall, New Castle Township, about 7:50 p.m. Store security observed him taking a Nintendo DS video game system from the store and exiting without paying for it.
