Sometimes hunger isn't why people steal groceries
The IGA store on Menzies is a frequent target for shoplifters. Here, the manager speaks with RCMP. Below, the man is arrested and put into a cruiser.
he IGA on Menzies Street already gives plenty to the Chilliwack Food Bank, so, they weren't in a giving mood to a man who decided to help himself, just after noon on Monday.
Police attended the IGA and arrested the man who was being held by store staff, then carted him off to jail.
The Chilliwack community comes together frequently, such as last weekend's food mob, to ensure there's enough food available for people without the means to pay for it.
So, in the land of plenty, hunger may not necessarily be the issue when
someone is stealing food.
