Witnesses said that the man concealed the games in his coat and walked quickly through the store, becoming irate when confronted by management and driving away. Police stopped the man near Utica Park Blvd. and Hidden View Ct.
In searching the man's car, police said they also found about five grams of marijuana. The man has two prior convictions for retail fraud, going back to 2009. Police seek charges for second-degree retail fraud, driving with a suspended license and marijuana possession.
