NASHUA — Police arrested two people on shoplifting charges late last week in Nashua, including a man allegedly caught stealing items from a Victoria’s Secret store.

On December 2 at 4:45 p.m. Nashua police arrested Hector Gutierrez Calderon, 51, of New York on one count of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, and theft detection shield use, Class A misdemeanor, after officers responded to Victoria’s Secret store at 310 Daniel Webster Highway to investigate a report of theft.

According to police, loss prevention associates identified a man and others placing items in a bag within the store.

According to police, store personnel attempted to stop Hector Gutierrez Calderon but he fled the store. Police located and arrested Gutierrez Calderon in the parking lot of the Pheasant Lane Mall.

Gutierrez Calderon was held on $2,500 cash bail at the Hillsborough County Department of Corrections in Manchester.

On Friday, Nov. 30, at 6:15 p.m. police arrested Samantha Rennie, 31, of 11 Amherst Street Apt. 4 in Nashua on one count of theft by unauthorized taking after officers responded to the Kohl’s store at 21 Gusabel Avenue on a reported shoplifting in progress.

Police spoke with loss prevention personnel, who reported a woman identified as Rennie had concealed numerous perfume bottles before leaving the store without paying for them. Police made contact with Rennie outside the store, and she was taken into custody.

Detectives later determined Rennie had two or more previous theft related convictions on her criminal record. Due to her previous convictions, detectives upgraded the charge against her to one count of theft by unauthorized taking (third strike), a Class B Felony.

Rennie was released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail and will be arraigned at the Hillsborough County Superior Court South on December 21.
