University Police Department officers arrested a man for stealing student belongings in District House and then shoplifting in Whole Foods Thursday night, according to a Metropolitan Police Department report.

At about 8:34 p.m., UPD officer Colin Felix received a radio run for the first theft at District House and spoke with the first victim to get more information. Felix then arrested Mamadou Dieng for the crimes, who was transported to the Second District station, the report said.

Dieng, 40, was charged with first and second degree theft and shoplifting after taking a MacBook valued at $1,500, Ray-Ban sunglasses, a Lululemon backpack, a $200 North Face backpack and a bottle of wine valued at $82.47, the report and MPD spokeswoman Rachel Reid said. Dieng will appear in the D.C. Superior Court on March 28, according to the court’s website.

Both District House thefts occurred in the basement levels and the shoplifting occurred in the Whole Foods cafe area, the report said.
