ABSECON – A Cherry Hill man apparently took a national home improvement chain up on its offer to “spring into savings” when he sprang into the parking lot with $3,314 worth of unpaid items, according to police.

 Glenn R. Fisher of Cherry Hill was arrested by Absecon Police Department officers at 3 p.m. Friday, May 2 at the Travel Lodge Motel, 316 E. White Horse Pike, in Galloway Township, according to a press release issued by Detective Sgt. Joyce Lee.

Fisher was charged with shoplifting and with outstanding warrants with the assistance of the Galloway Township Police, Lee said. Bail was set at $5,000 full cash and Fisher was sent to the Atlantic County Justice Facility in Mays Landing.

At 1:50 p.m., employees at the Home Deport, 421 Absecon Boulevard, reported a shoplifting.
