Lower Southampton Township Police were able to arrest two suspected shoplifters after a shoplifting incident on July 5, 2024, at the ACME store on Street Road. Police received a call about a theft in progress and observed the two shoplifters putting merchandise into a car. Employees saw the theft and called police.

Since no receipt could be found for the merchandise, police learned that they had loaded a cart with the items and simply pushed it outside. Upon further investigation, it was learned that this couple allegedly stole items from the Five Below store just before entering ACME.

They were identified as Nicole Welsh of Levittown Pa and Oliver Lee of Philadelphia. Both are charged with retail theft and related offenses. A small amount of drugs was found on Lee, police said. He is also charged with those offenses.

Police were not sure how the two men knew each other.
