Man attempts to steal cart full of steaks, shrimp but leaves loot behind

Yorkville police say a man attempted to steal a shopping cart full of food and beverages, including steaks and Red Bull energy drinks, but drove off without his loot.

Police said officers were called to a store in the 200 block of East Veterans Parkway on Tuesday, June 12, at 5:20 p.m. after a man pushed a shopping cart containing nine packages of steaks, 15 bags of frozen shrimp, and a 12-ounce can of Red Bull past the point of purchase.

When a store employee attempted to stop him, he left the cart and got into the passenger side of a red car, and the car fled the area, police said.

The items the man attempted to steal were worth $455.64, according to police.
