norfolk-police(AP) — Police say a Norfolk man accused of shoplifting tried to sell the stolen items online.

Norfolk police say 19-year-old Marcus J. Davis used social media to advertise two pairs of headphones. The post was a few days after an Aug. 27 theft at a local Target store that involved two pairs of headphones.

The cost of the headphones was valued at more than $530.

Police say Davis was identified as a suspect from store security cameras. Police then discovered the online post.

Davis was arrested Wednesday and he has been charged with felony shoplifting. He remains at the Madison County Jail.

Court records do not list an attorney.
