Linden detectives have released surveillance photo in hopes of identifying a shoplifter who they say stole a bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac from a secure cabinet at the Pied Piper Liquor Store, valued at $2,849.00.   The store, located in the Aviation Plaza Shopping Center on Routes 1&9 in Linden, reported the theft occurred on May 16 at 8:55 p.m.   The owner reviewed video surveillance footage and observed the man remove the lock on the cabinet and take the high-priced bottle. 

The owner told police that the man has been in the store in the past and has taken bottles of liquor without paying for them. Detectives believe he may be a local resident.   Anyone with information on the theft or who can identify the suspect is asked to call Detective Michael Burnette at 908-474-8535 or email
