Not Your Average Heist
A strange crime as reported in The Hartford Advocate:
It's always surprising to see what lengths people will go to get away with petty crimes, even if it's for something as silly as ganking baby food. According to the Courant, 22-year-old Bristol resident Paul Bergeron allegedly tried lifting some of the instant baby formula Enfamil from a Shaw's supermarket on Sept. 26 in West Hartford. Police caught on in the parking lot when Bergeron was seen holding the formula in plain sight and yelling "Go, go, go!" to his getaway driver. They reportedly slammed into an unmarked cop car and Bergeron allegedly tried to get away on foot. He ended up in a fourth-floor laundry room, where he was allegedly punished by a police dog and hit with a stun gun. He faces robbery and assault charges.Ouchee!
