Colonie Center has a Marine recruitment station inside the mall. That helped in catching an alleged shoplifter on Thursday.
According to the Marines, Pfc. Noah McKnight of Cohoes heard a security alarm go off. At the same time, he made eye contact with a suspicious man.
After a brief foot chase, the suspect was caught, along with $700 in stolen merchandise.
The suspect was then arrested by Colonie Police.
