BURLINGTON — A Greenfield man is facing a misdemeanor retail theft charge after allegedly stealing 30 packages of meat, 15 containers of prepackaged deli meats, five bottles of liquor and five produce items from a Burlington grocery store.
Anthony Mitchem, 40, is also charged with three counts of misdemeanor bail jumping.
According to a criminal complaint:
On Dec. 4 a Burlington Police officer was dispatched for a report of a shoplifting that reportedly occurred on Nov. 19 at the Pick ‘n Save at 1008 Milwaukee Ave. The officer spoke to a loss-prevention employee, who said that at around 11 a.m. that day a man left the store with a cart full of merchandise without paying for it. He allegedly stole: 30 packages of meat including T-bone and rib eye steaks and roasts; five bottles of liquor, including Absolut vodka and Jack Daniels whiskey; 15 containers of pre-packaged deli meats and five packaged produce items.
Mitchem was previously found guilty for retail theft on Nov. 11 and Oct. 7 and signed a bond for both. For the Nov. 11 bond the condition included that Mitchem cannot have contact with any Pick ‘n Save stores.
A status conference in Mitchem’s case is set for 8:30 a.m. March 21 at the Racine County Courthouse, 730 Wisconsin Ave.
