Portland man accused of theft charges after alleged shoplifting

During this busy shopping season, many Oregonians are out and about doing their holiday shopping. During this time, some Oregonians may face charges for suspected shoplifting. These charges are serious and can result in jail time, fines and other penalties.

A 28-year-old Portland man is accused of shoplifting. He was recently arrested on multiple criminal charges. These charges include first-degree theft, second-degree theft, identity theft and first-degree aggravated theft. According to reports, the man is accused of stealing around $50,000 in merchandise between June and November 2015.

Police say that the man stole a variety of luxury goods from stores throughout the area. These included stealing designer handbags and perfume gift sets worth more than $2,000. He is also accused of stealing Rolex watches -- one of which was worth more than $32,000.

Police claim that a variety of evidence was used to determine the man's identity. They claim that surveillance footage and a dropped cell phone were used to determine that the man was behind the shoplifting. Police also claim that the man admitted to some of these crimes after he was arrested.

Police and prosecutors must use a variety of evidence against individuals in any given case. This evidence is often subjective and open to interpretation.

With the right criminal defense strategy, people can defend against evidence used against them. A proper criminal defense strategy is essential in ensuring that a person is not falsely accused of crime. With the right criminal defense, people can also avoid penalties for serious charges, including felonies. People must also remember that a criminal defense can help to protect their constitutional rights.
