Shoplifting: East Bagley Road
The manager of Walgreens, 6 East Bagley Road, called police around 4.30pm on March 4 and said an unidentified man had stolen several frozen meals from the store.
A Walgreens employee had seen the man enter the store and believed he was acting suspiciously. The manager approached the man and asked if she could help him. She saw at least two frozen dinners on a shelf of toilet paper in front of the man, who was carrying a backpack.
The man refused help. Shortly after, the manager noticed that the frozen dinners on the toilet paper shelf were gone. She asked the man what happened to the dinners. He said he put them back in the freezer.
The manager knew the man hadn’t put the dinners back in the freezer because he hadn’t walked to that part of the store. The man then left Walgreens without paying anything.
Police searched the area but did not find the man. The manager said the man looked like someone who stole more than $100 worth of merchandise from the store in November or December.
