Gum addiction

Two thieves were arrested on May 5 when they supplanted an apparent smoking addiction with another bad habit -- shoplifting.

Police said that the suspects, a 41-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman, were caught trying to swipe 18 packages of Nicorette gum, an anti-smoking aid, from the Target in the Atlantic Center Mall on Flatbush and Atlantic avenues at 6:50 pm.

The two also tried to pocket 19 boxes of Prilosec heartburn treatment before store employees grabbed them and contacted police.

Where: 139 Flatbush Avenue
