SYRACUSE — A Syracuse man was arrested for stealing $800 worth of merchandise from The Revolving Closet.
Tyler Dean Reith, 24, 201 E. Greenhaus Drive 17, Syracuse, is charged with burglary, a level 5 felony; and theft, a level 6 felony.
On Jan. 30, a Syracuse Police officer went to a location regarding a person on a roof. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with a man who said one of his employees saw a person walking on the roof of a building behind his business.
According to court documents, officers found footprints in the snow on top of a vacant building. The footprints appeared to lead to The Revolving Closet in Syracuse. Officers then went to make contact with The Revolving Closet’s owner. Meanwhile, one of the officers saw a man on a rooftop; the man was wearing a hat and carrying a duffel bag with a price tag on it.
The officer recognized the man from prior dealings and identified him as Reith, who admitted to just stealing items from The Revolving Closet. Reith said he went into The Revolving Closet through a window he accessed from the roof. Once inside the building, Reith said he filled four bags with clothing, shoes, jewelry and cash. While walking across the roof to leave with the stolen items, Reith fell when officers spotted him. When he fell, Reith dropped two of the bags and injured himself.
The total value of the merchandise taken was $800.88. Reith also stole $180.48 in cash.
He has an initial hearing for this case at 10:30 a.m. April 5, in Kosciusko Superior Court One.
