Cops: Beer bandit busted
Henrique Vieira, 25, of Bridgeport, was charged with sixth-degree larceny about 3 p.m. Thursday after walking out of Super Stop & Shop, 760 Villa Ave., with a shopping cart full of beer, according to police.
An employee had been watching Vieira before she left the supermarket. Police were called and arrived at the store before Vieira could make it out of the parking lot.
Officers allegedly found two 18-pack cases of Corona, a 30-pack of Bud Light and a 30-pack of Coors Light with a total value of $103.76 in the cart.
Released on a promise to appear, Vieira was given a July 12 court date for Bridgeport Superior Court.
