DARIEN, Conn. – A Stamford man was charged with being involved in the theft of eight cases of beer from a Darien Stop & Shop store earlier this summer, according to police reports.
Employees at the Stop & Shop in the Goodwives Shopping Center called police on Aug. 5 to report that two men had filled a cart with cases of beer and walked out without paying. Six cases of Coors Light and two cases of Corona with a total value of $126 were reported missing, police said.
One of the employees saw the two get into a car, and gave the license plate number to police. Police traced the plate to the car’s owner, who identified Lamonte Corey, 41, of Pacific Street in Stamford as one of the suspects, according to police reports.
Corey was arrested Sunday on a warrant. He was charged with sixth-degree larceny and conspiracy, and held on a $1,000 bond. Two other arrests are still pending in the case, Darien Police said.
