What, you can't afford Binny's so you shoplift as Costco?
- Shoplifting has escalated in the city, and the Chicago Police Department’s organized crime division is part of a task force trying to stop it.
But now the 2 Investigators have learned one of their own officers was charged with shoplifting after an alert store security guard and cameras caught the cop in the act.
According to police reports, on Oct. 18, Costco security saw a customer at its store at 1430 S. Ashland Ave. take a bottle of wine off the shelf and place it in her shopping cart. She then moved to the back of the store, where security saw her place the bottle in her purse.
Not just one bottle of wine - but five. And then attempted to flee the scene following a confrontation. Great job there lady, way to tarnish the star.
