Suspect nabbed in Kmart burglary

Phil­adelphia po­lice on Nov. 2 ar­res­ted a man who al­legedly burg­lar­ized a Frank­ford Kmart store last month.

Ron­ald Starling, 23, of the 6300 block of Magno­lia St., al­legedly broke in­to the Kmart at 900 Or­tho­dox St. on Oct. 10.

At the time, po­lice said an un­known man entered the store dur­ing nor­mal busi­ness hours and hid. After clos­ing time and after em­ploy­ees had left, he al­legedly dis­abled an alarm and raided the place, steal­ing $10,000 worth of video game sys­tems, laptop com­puters and TVs.

Po­lice re­leased sur­veil­lance video of the man that day and soon re­ceived a tele­phone tip identi­fy­ing Starling as the man in the video.

On Nov. 2, po­lice ob­served Starling al­legedly op­er­at­ing a stolen vehicle on the 2400 block of In­di­ana Ave., stopped him and ar­res­ted him after a brief foot pur­suit. He was charged with burg­lary and re­lated crimes. ••
