Ridgewood NJ, Patrolman Paul Dinice responded to Whole Foods on a report of a shoplifter in custody. A loss prevention officer for Whole Foods had observed the accused fill a canvas bag with items, and then walk out of the store without paying for the items, police said.

Dinice arrested Adolfo Noya, 47, of Wyckoff on charges of shoplifting. Noya was released pending an appearance in Ridgewood Municipal Court. Adolfo Noya is a Spanish teacher at George Washington Middle School. Employed by the Ridgewood Public School district since 2000. Noya was released pending an appearance in Ridgewood Municipal Court on Jan. 3.

Ridgewood School District Superintendent Daniel Fishbein took the high road and told the Ridgewood News , “Allegations or accusations made against any person are not the same as findings of guilt,”

“Based on the information we have at this point, the district has decided to wait for this matter to be resolved by the legal system,” Fishbein continued. “When and if guilt is determined or someone’s presence is a detraction to the educational process and action is necessary, please be assured all necessary statutes and codes will be followed.” ( https://www.northjersey.com/news/Superintendent_Ridgewood_teacher_wont_be_suspended_while_facing_shoplifting_charge.html )

  1. It will be very interesting to see how this evolves. This guy has been nothing but a problem at GW. There have been numerous serious complaints filed against him by parents and students. Until this point the Administration has not been able to or not been willing to address the situation and file tenure charges to remove him. My guess is a conviction removes him from the Ridgewood School system immediately.

      Thank the “Do it for the kids” Union for that.
