MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are looking for a man they say stole a shopping cart full of items from an East Memphis Kroger and threatened a Kroger employee with a gun in the parking lot.
According to the police report, the suspect entered the store in the 500 block of Mendenhall Road at 7:30 in the morning on October 30, filled up his cart, and left without paying.
A Kroger employee said while the man was loading up his car, they took his picture, and that’s when the suspect covered his face and produced a handgun. He never pointed the weapon directly at anyone, police said.
The suspect left in a silver four-door Dodge Ram pickup truck and is now facing a charge of aggravated assault.
Kroger employees told officers they didn’t know how much merchandise was taken or the value.
