Alleged Shoplifter Now with Bigger Legal Problems

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man was arrested when allegedly caught doing some illegal shopping.  Grant Romano had his initial hearing this morning in La Porte Circuit Court.


According to police, he was caught shoplifting nearly two weeks ago at Walmart in La Porte.  He was banned from the store and informed he would be arrested for trespassing if he ever came back, police said.


Romano was arrested, though, when police discovered three outstanding warrants out for his arrest on crimes such as domestic battery.  During a search, police said three hypodermic needles were found in his coat pocket along with a metal spoon and alcohol swabs. 


The 27 year old Romano is also charged with giving police several false names before they confirmed his actual identity.
