ShopWrong: ShopRite Suspect Sought

Police released photos and video of suspect who allegedly took food from supermarket.

Police just released photos and video footage of a man suspected of stealing food from ShopRite.

The man took two items and left the Cherry Street store without paying for them on Nov. 23, according to police.

When a store security guard approached him, the suspect pushed the worker back and ran away, police said.

A witness later told investigators that the suspect ran through a Sunnyside Court backyard across the street from the shopping plaza and then jumped in a dark Chevrolet pickup in the parking lot of neaby Goodies Restaurant, police said.

The suspect is described as a white male, heavy set, fair complexion, goatee, with a cross tattoo on the right side of his neck and other tattoos on the front and left side of his neck.

The male was wearing a blue baseball hat with “CHEVY” on the front in white lettering, a red shirt, gray hooded sweatshirt, and a green camouflage jacket.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Officer Michael Moreno at (203) 878-6551 or visit the Milford Police Department website at www.milfordpd.org and click on “Crime Tips."

Oh, the poor, dear man, driven by hunger to a life of crime. Now every cop in the entire nation is on the lookout for him, and now who knows what society will drive him to do. He's a thief. If you feel so bad for him, go pay his grocery bill and hire him a lawyer.

You're forgetting he assaulted a security guard. What about the next time.

It may seem sad that someone is stealing food because they are so hungry. In reality, they are too lazy, mentally incompetent, or on drugs to go through legal means of obtaining food. In Milford, there is a soup kitchen not far from ShopRite and serves nutritious lunches for free. There is also food banks at various churches in town. In our community, we are fortunate enough where we have resources so no one should go hungry.
