As the shoplifter went down the shopping lane, he got a spotted by off-duty cop! Nice one. And according to the AP, this what happened next
“The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office reports that an off-duty detective was shopping at a Sweetbay supermarket Sunday when he noticed what appeared to be a man with groceries stuffed in his pants.
The detective approached 32-year-old Joseph Young and ordered him to stop. Authorities say Young then removed several bags of shrimp from his pants and promised to put them back.
When Young fled for the store’s exit, the detective tackled and restrained him until patrol deputies arrived.”
The criminal was hauled off to county and charged with resisting arrest and shoplifting.
What a moron. Too bad this episode did not make an episode of COPS.
