Grocery restraining order?
4:11 a.m. 500 blk. Bay Isles Parkway. Larceny. Store manager said 82-year-old man asked for two packs of cigarettes and would not pay for them until he shopped around some more. Manager later noticed the man leaving the store without paying for the cigarettes or the magazine under his arm and confronted him. Subject said he merely forgot to pay for the items and threatened her with legal action. Manager said the same man tried to do the same thing the night before. Police gave the man a trespassing warning, so the Longboat resident is no longer allowed in the only grocery store on the island.
