Two teens nearly made it out of the Clifton Costco with more than $92,000 worth of stolen jewelry before security guards grabbed them, authorities said.
Spotted by the guards last Friday night, the 17-year-old thieves tried to flee through an emergency exit -- but it wouldn’t open, Sgt. Robert Anderson said.
Police took both into custody and retrieved the jewelry -- worth a combined $92,119.82, Anderson said.
They served both teens with delinquency complaints for shoplifting and released them to adults pending a hearing in the Family Division of Superior Court in Paterson.
