BLOOMFIELD VILLAGE, Mich. – A 47-year-old Dearborn man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly trying to steal a shopping cart full of groceries out of a Bloomfield Village Kroger without paying.

Police said David Moses walked out of the Kroger at 3600 W. Maple Road around 3 p.m. pushing a shopping cart filled with groceries. When employees confronted him, Moses left the cart in the parking lot and walked away.

Employees called police, and officers found Moses hiding in a nearby business.

Moses was arrested after police confirmed he stole $300 worth of lobster, shrimp and salmon.

Oakland County prosecutors charged Moses with first-degree retail fraud. He is being held on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to return to court Feb. 9 for a probable cause hearing.
