Cops say this guy rolled out over $200 in groceries from Safeway
SPRINGFIELD, VA. — Fairfax County Police say they are looking for a shoplifter. It may be that the bridges over the Potomac River make the area more accessible for thieves who wish to do their shoplifting in Virginia.
Thieves who wish to make off with large quantities of stolen groceries must use a vehicle as Metro makes it very inconvenient to load your groceries on the subway.
Detectives are investigating a grand larceny that took place on Thursday, November 19.
A man, described as a black male thirty to forty years of age, was seen leaving the Safeway supermarket in the 5900 block of Kingstowne Shopping Center.
He had a full cart of merchandise that was not paid for, totaling over $200. The man left the scene in a brown 1999 Chevrolet Astro van with Washington DC license tags.
