Man allegedly shoplifts socks, more from Athens store

Nicky Joe Frederick, 37, of Greensboro was arrested Monday at Family Dollar on Hawthorne Avenue, where he allegedly tried to steal deodorant, socks, a USB charger and a USB cable with a total value of $20, Athens-Clarke County police said.

The manager called 911 after a sensor on one of the items set off an alarm as Frederick attempted to leave the store.

He was charged with theft by shoplifting, police said.
