Nearly $300 of groceries taken from Papa Joe’s
A supposedly distracted man walked out of Papa Joe’s, located at 34244 Woodward Avenue in Birmingham, on Sunday, April 2, without paying for his cart full of $288 worth of groceries.
Birmingham police officers arrived at the store after employees tried to confront the man. The 68-year-old reportedly told officers he didn’t intend to steal the cart full of unbagged groceries but was preoccupied on his phone.
According to police, the man was issued a citation and was told he needed to contact the court.
