Bland spotted the pair driving from the north end of the mall after a security officer at Nordstrom called police.

He stopped them and found 16 phony credit cards, along with more than $1,700 worth of merchandise and gift cards from Nordstrom, Children’s Place, Avenue, Red Lobster and Modell’s that Brock said was bought with them. The officer also found the shredder and a small amount of marijuana, the chief said.

Both are being held in the Bergen County Jail — the elder Hall on $10,000 bail and his son on $20,000 bail.

Kenneth Hall will also be given over to Kearny police, who’d issued a warrant for his arrest in connection with a separate incident.
