Richmond County Police seek brazen Kroger shoplifters



Police are searching for a gang of meat and beer thieves who have been preying on the Wrightsboro Road Kroger.

Deputies were called to the store Monday where they were informed by a loss prevention employee that four black males have taken items from the store on at least four occasions in the past month.

On Jan. 20, the bandits made off with three packs of shrimp, six packs of rib-eye steaks, four 30-pack cases of beer and some toilet paper. They returned two days later for two more packs of rib-eyes and then on the 27th for four packs of steaks.

On Jan. 29, the men hid 15 packs of steaks in their shirts before walking out without paying. According to the report, the four men returned four to five times in an hour that day. On the last two trips, two of the bandits are seen pushing beer out in their carts.
