Waterville police seek woman who boldly stole $200 worth of groceries

WATERVILLE (AP) — Police in Waterville are looking for a woman they say ignored employees trying to stop her and walked out of a supermarket with about $200 worth of food.

Sgt. Brian Gardiner said the woman pushed the laden grocery cart out of the Hannaford store at about 4:15 p.m. Monday.

He said workers tried to stop her but she refused, got in a car and drove away.

Gardiner told the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1aCipo9 ) that employees got the vehicle's license plate number and gave investigators a good description of the woman.

Police think the shoplifter was from the China area.

We'll be seeing a lot more of this when Obamacare goes into full effect. People will have to choose paying their inflated premiums or feeding their families. Shame on anybody who vited for Obama. You've all disgraced the nation.
