An individual was caught on camera at a St. Maries grocer damaging approximately $200 worth of goods, May 16.
Footage from Archie’s IGA security cameras shows a male suspect opening meat packages, pouring out milk and damaging various other products.
According to Benewah County Sheriff Dave Resser the suspect then went on to purchase a package of bread crumbs and a box of snap-its before leaving the store.
“We have a suspect. Police have not made contact with the suspect at this time,” Sheriff Resser said.
The crime is considered petty-theft, a misdemeanor, since the damage total is less than $1,000. In Idaho, petty-theft is punishable by a maximum fine of $1,000 and up to 1-year in county jail. Due to the coronavirus, misdemeanor offenders are issued a citation and released.
