Bacon thief caught in the act at Sapulpa Warehouse Market
Police say a woman on a motorized scooter is seen on video stuffing packages of bacon into her hoodie before leaving the store.
On Saturday, October 26th, Officer Cady Byrnes was dispatched to the Sapulpa Warehouse Market on a larceny report.
Upon arriving at the store, Byrnes watched on video as a woman, later found to be 64-year-old Renee Alexander, got on a motorized scooter with a basket and drove to the “bacon section” of the store. Once there, Alexander grabbed several packages of bacon and put them in the basket, according to the arrest affidavit.
Alexander proceeded to drive the scooter down an aisle, and according to the arrest report, is seen on video stuffing the bacon into her hoodie. She proceeded to the front of the store and was confronted by the manager and other Warehouse Market Staff.
Alexander got off the scooter, forced her way past the manager and staff and exited the store, getting into a silver Kia with front-end damage, before leaving the parking lot at a high rate of speed.
According to the report, Byrnes was able to locate Alexander after discovering it was her sister’s vehicle. A second officer found Alexander at an address they had on file, and she was placed under arrest and charged with larceny. Police say that Alexander has five previous charges for petit larceny and four previous burglary charges that were all more than ten years ago. Alexander has been convicted of petit larceny twice within the last two years.
