Cherry Hill Police arrest Martin Cohen and accuse him of stealing high-end guitars from Sam Ash Music on Route 38.
A York, PA, man who allegedly smuggled high-end guitars in his pants and the National Park, NJ, woman who allegedly helped him pull off the thefts were arrested last week and charged in one incident at a local music store, Cherry Hill Police said.
Martin H. Cohen, of the 100 block of South Belvidere Avenue in York, who police said slipped Les Paul guitars worth $2,800 down his pants on at least two occasions at Sam Ash Music on Route 38, was charged with theft for the December incident.
