HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Huntsville police say a Kroger customer tried to make off with nearly $600 worth of groceries, but he didn’t get far.

It happened at the Kroger on Moores Mill Road. Police say the man loaded up a cart then wheeled it past the cashiers without paying. But the wheels on his cart locked, stopping this shoplifter in his tracks.

A Kroger manager said they have technology that will lock the cart’s wheels if the groceries aren’t scanned.

Huntsville police would love to catch this guy. A Kroger manager said he is a repeat offender who’s left the same store with a loaded cart 12 times before.

Do you recognize him? If so, call Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers at 256-53-CRIME.
