A former North Augusta High School principal has again found himself in hot water after police say he attempted to shoplift at an Aiken Kroger supermarket.

Richard Samuel Terlizzi, 53, of Aiken, was arrested June 27 and charged with shoplifting after police were called to the Kroger at 1795 Whiskey Road, according to an Aiken Department of Public Safety incident report.

A witness, John Shaw III, told police that he watched Terlizzi go through the store’s self-checkout line and place unpurchased goods in a bag with items he had already bought.

Officers confirmed that several items in Terlizzi’s bag weren’t listed on his receipt, according to the report. He was then taken to the Aiken County Detention Center and has since been released.

According to Augusta Chronicle archives, Terlizzi became the principal of North Augusta High School in the late 1990s.

Terlizzi resigned from his post in 1998 and was subsequently arrested by the North Augusta Department of Public Safety on charges of embezzlement of public funds. He had been accused of misappropriating $1,000 at the high school.

Parents leaving their infant

Parents leaving their infant children in vehicles to die, a woman leaving her 9 year old daughter in a park for HOURS, while she works, the educators of our children, stealing, sleeping with students and numerous other immoral acts; shootings, stabbings, people getting plummeted by another person, with people recording it but NOT helping the victim, and all these are just locally!!

And SOME people would say there is nothing wrong with this world and everything is hunky dory!! Decency is this world is slipping away, FAST!!

How is this even possible? If

How is this even possible? If you leave something out of your bag or put something heavier than it expected into your bag, the whole system goes crazy and notifies the attendant to "help" you.
