Nineteen-year-old alleged serial shoplifter Elijah Rosario was sentenced to five months in prison last Friday after he was arrested for stealing from a spa on East 16th Street at the end of April. A fourth person, 43-year-old Marvin Townsend, was also arrested last week in connection with one of the later attempted thefts at the business and was charged with robbery.

Police said that Rosario, Goldstein and the third unknown person got into the spa at 10:30 p.m. that night and allegedly got away with $180.
