Shrimp Bandit Hits South Loop Whole Foods

We probably would have opted for Tuna Steaks, but whatever floats your boat:
A 42-year-old man has been charged with stealing over $200 dollars worth of shrimp from a South Loop Whole Foods grocery store.

Paul Harding, out on parole for retail theft, grabbed several bags of the seafood from the store at 1101 S. Canal Street, and placed them in double bags Monday afternoon, authorities said.

He then walked past the last available register without paying the $203.44 he owed, according to Chicago police spokeswoman Laura Kubiak.
