PORTSMOUTH Arraigned Monday on charges alleging he pawned stolen gold and was caught stealing sneakers from a mall store, James Morphy told a judge he was “caught up in a gang” that steals shoes and that he was beaten when he refused to do so.

Morphy, 19, with no permanent address, was arrested by Newington police after a JCPenney employee reported the theft of a $65 pair of Adidas sneakers. Police allege the Saturday theft was committed by Morphy, who led store security on a chase during which a glass store door was shattered. Following his arrest, officers learned Morphy was wanted on a warrant for pawning a pair of gold chains that were stolen in Barrington, police allege.

Arraigned by video from the Rockingham County House of Corrections, Morphy was charged with two felonies alleging he pawned two pieces of gold jewelry and collected $650 for each. He was also arraigned on a misdemeanor count of shoplifting. Police Capt. Brian Newcomer petitioned the court for cash bail noting Morphy has reported four different addresses “depending on the occasion.” Newcomer said Morphy’s criminal history includes thefts in Maine and burglaries in Florida.

Morphy said he was “running with the wrong crowd,” called the judge’s attention to a cut over his right eye and said it was inflicted by someone in the so called shoe stealing gang when he refused to steal shoes.
