If convicted, Cody Quadraccia, 21, faces up to 18 months in prison and/or fines up to $20,000.
According to the criminal complaint, officers with the Caledonia Police Department responded to a report of two retail thefts of Captain Morgan’s Rum from Pick’n Save, 5111 Douglas Ave., at 11 a.m. Monday. The first at 2:43 p.m. July 4 and the second on July 11. The store security officer gave the officers photos of the man, who they later learned was Quadraccia after an employee identified him in the photos.
Police went to Quadraccia’s home where his parents told them it was indeed their son, that he has a problem with drug abuse and he had also stolen from jewelry and checks from them as well. His mother then showed them a Facebook photo of Quadraccia holding up the bottle and looking intoxicated. Police then went to Quadraccia’s girlfriend’s house and arrested him.
Quadraccia, who is being held on a probation hold, told the police he did steal the rum and that he had done it “4 or 5” other times.
