Did a Portland Couple Shoplift $5 Million Worth of Groceries?
Safeway claims one sticky-fingered Oregon duo lifted everything from shampoo to DVDs over a span of many years.
But finally their run of ransacking has come to an end. Richard Lavern Remington and Angela Rose Evans were arrested two weeks ago for a string of petty thefts at Portland, Ore. supermarkets that added up to one hefty haul.
The couple faced charges last week to accusations that they stole $5 million worth of merchandise from Safeway grocery stores. How could they possibly swipe so many goods while evading capture? After all, Safeway is a national chain with antitheft measures in place, including a loss prevention team. But Remington and Evans apparently slid under the radar with their low-level crime.
