An Augusta couple are facing charges after the woman tried to conceal more than $100 in seafood and beer in her purse at a Deans Bridge Road grocery store, police said.

A loss prevention employee at Kroger, 3126 Deans Bridge Road, told police he saw Marlene Gadson, 41, placing several types of seafood into her purse Sunday afternoon. A man, identified as Harold Johnson, 55, approached Gadson with three beers, which she also concealed in her purse, the report stated.

The couple paid for several items in their shopping cart but failed to pay for the seafood and beer, police said; officers recovered the beers, catfish nuggets, $56 worth of shrimp and $47 worth of lobster tails from Gadson’s purse.

Gadson and Johnson, both of the 2500 block of Hammond Avenue, have been charged with misdemeanor theft by shoplifting.

If my children had been starving

If my children had been starving when I was the only one working, I may have asked the grocer for food, but they never went with a meal of some kind. When you steal out of greed it just goes against what this world is about. You know, the world that God created. Not to mention that it's not setting a real good example for your kids and it's a huge disappointment to any decent people you may be related to. If it ain't mine....and I can't buy it...we ain't gettin it....there ya go. It's just so simple. A favorite quote from my deceased father was, "If it isn't yours, keep you D--- hands off of it".
