Man described as habitual shoplifter arrested again

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man who is no stranger to law enforcement was again arrested at the Eastern Hills Mall.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Office calls Jeffrey Ridgeway a habitual offender. He was arrested Thursday after allegedly stealing eight boxes of cologne, valued at $660, from J.C. Penney. But he’s been arrested at the mall in the past, including once for taking someone’s vehicle without permission.

The 56-year-old is charged with petit larceny and is being held in the Erie County Holding Center on $500 bail.
