GLEN ROCK, N.J. -- A feisty Super Fresh employee chased and tackled a thief who tried to make off with $66 worth of cheese, Glen Rock police said Monday.

Raul Banks, 35, of Paterson dropped the cheese and broke free after the worker grabbed him on Lincoln Avenue, Chief Dean Ackermann told Daily Voice.

Soon after, Glen Rock Police Officer T.J. Graziani collared Banks, with help from Fair Lawn and Hawthorne police, the chief said.

Witnesses and store video surveillance confirmed the theft, he added.

Banks was charged with shoplifting and released pending a hearing.
