Published 12:55 pm, Wednesday, July 14, 2010
Alon Sapir, 28, of 562 Black Rock Turnpike, was charged with sixth-degree larceny about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday after he allegedly tired to steal $110 worth of groceries from Super Stop & Shop, 760 Villa Ave.
Sapir scanned 10 items at the store self-service checkout and paid for them, police said, but failed to do the same for 37 other items.
Sapir later allegedly told police what he did was an "act of stupidity."
Released on a promise to appear in court, he is scheduled for a July 26 appearance in Bridgeport Superior Court.
