A Kentucky man who is allegedly a serial shoplifter has been arrested trying to leave a Kroger store with over $300.00 worth of merchandise without paying. Witnesses say he just pushed the shopping cart right out the front door, bypassing the cash registers all together.
The man was also a suspect in three thefts at the local Wal-Mart store. When his mug shot was viewed at the jail it was apparently easy to make a positive identification because the Wal-Mart loss prevention officer noticed that the man was wearing the same Dale Earnhart t-shirt that he wore when he was last arrested for stealing from the Wal-Mart store.
The man has reportedly confessed to the thefts and says he steals to support his Oxycontin drug habit.
