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.
