Wixom police arrested a suspect who allegedly stole merchandise from the Meijer store located at 44900 Grand River on Wednesday, April 4.
According to police reports, Meijer loss prevention officers observed a black male wearing dark clothing take two bottles of liquor from a shelf and conceal them in a bag before taking some items from the toiletries aisle. He then reportedly left the store without paying for the merchandise.
Loss prevention officers stopped the man and, although he dropped the bag of stolen items once confronted, he refused to be escorted to the loss prevention office and instead fled the store.
Wixom police were told to be on the lookout for the suspect and observed him walking along Grand Oaks next to Meijer.
He was lodged and later released after being issued a citation for third-degree retail fraud.
