Trader Joe’s Shoplifter Busted On Grand and Suffolk Streets
The scourge of shoplifting at Trader Joe’s continues, even with the stepped up security presence which includes about 5 security agents on-site at all times. But even that will not deter the desperate and needy from giving it a go at a free lunch. In this case the perp tried making off with a 6-pack of beer and when confronted by security he made a run for it. The police from the 7th Precinct were already on route and busted the perp out on the street after a foot-chase ensued, culminating in him being taken away in handcuffs. This all occurred around 8:45pm Friday night causing a bit of a stir at Saluggi’s and Grand Street Pizza whose patrons had front row seating for the event.
