An accused serial shoplifter with 122 prior arrests was released again under New York state’s bail reform law despite even liberal Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office wanting him to remain in custody, according to a report.

The New York Post reported that Lorenzo McLucas, 34, was released on his own recognizance Wednesday following his most recent arrest for allegedly stealing from the cosmetics counter at a Duane Reade on Lexington Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.

The criminal complaint says officers found a pipe and possible cocaine residue in his possession, but he was charged with just two misdemeanors – petit larceny for shoplifting and criminal possession of a control substance – over the incident.
