Del. State Rep. Gerald Brady Charged With Shoplifting


A Wilmington lawmaker who has already announced his resignation from the House of Representatives has been charged in connection with two shoplifting incidents.

Newark Police said Tuesday that they received a report earlier this month about a man who was leaving a supermarket with a cart full of merchandise without paying. An employee confronted the man, who declined to pay and continued on to his vehicle.

The man apparently was recognized by the employee regarding a similar incident in December.

The vehicle’s license plate contained the initials for Representative Gerald Brady, D-Wilmington, who was charged Tuesday with Shoplifting.

Last year, Brady was sharply criticized for an email that was apparently sent to the wrong person that contained anti-Asian slurs. Brady had already announced that he would not seek reelection this year.
