Theft from Buildings
On Nov. 28, police were called to the Collingswood Public Library to investigate the report of a theft. Security footage from the library revealed that around 1 p.m. on Nov. 25, a juvenile walked around a book cart used to block access to parts of the children’s section.
The teen was observed opening the closed drawers of the desk and removing $2, police said. He was identified as a 15-year-old male from Collingswood who was given a station-house adjustment, and agreed to complete an unspecified number of community service hours in the borough.
On Dec. 3, police were called to the principal’s office at Collingswood High School. There a student indicated that her white Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone and Otter Box phone case had been stolen when she went to the bathroom. Police have no suspects at the time.

Shoplifting/Possession of Hypodermic Needle
On Dec. 4, a police officer at the Haddon Avenue Wawa was approached by an employee who indicated that a shoplifting was in progress. At the scene, officers confronted Deirdre Heil, 31, of Bellmawr, who allegedly pocketed two candy bars valued at less than $5 in total. Heil was arrested for shoplifting.
At the time of her processing, it was determined that Heil was also wanted on a $500 warrant from Deptford Municipal Court. Unable to meet the $500 full-cash bail, she was sent to the Camden County correctional facility.
Just six days later, on Dec. 10, police again encountered Heil outside of the WaWa at 11:30 a.m. She was reportedly shaking, visibly upset, and continually placing her hands into her purse. Officers observed that Heil was in possession of a hypodermic syringe, and arrested her for it. She was released on her own recognizance.
