A Jersey City man managed to run across Route 3 unscathed after shoplifting at a local store -- but couldn't outrun the law, cops said. 

Police arrested Mark Carter, 37, Sunday afternoon following a report of shoplifting at Marshall's in Mill Creek, authorities said. 

Carter fled the store on foot at around 2:10 p.m. and headed in the direction of Route 3. There, he crossed all lanes of traffic and led police on a "brief foot pursuit," Secaucus police Capt. Dennis Miller said. 

Police eventually caught him on Roosevelt Avenue and placed him under arrest. Off-duty police officers Joseph Fuardo and Mark Valentino assisted in the arrest, Miller added.
