This is a weird one. Jim Bulleit, the morning reporter at WLKY-TV, was arrested at a Prospect Kroger Tuesday and charged with shoplifting and criminal trespassing. It wasn’t his first run-in with the store.
We know there’s more to this story, but here’s what is in the police report.
Store security observed subject remove 4 Cadbury eggs from shelf and put them in top of bascart. After making compelte circle of store, subject picked up candy eggs and concealed them in right pants pockets while walking down aisle 13. Subject then pushed cart past checkout into the foyer. It contained chips, buns, apples, milk… These items had not been paid for. After looking around about 30 seconds, subject pushed cart out of store. Subject was loading merchandise into trunk of vehicle when stopped.
But if that’s not strange enough, there’s this:
This is 2nd time subject has been caught shoplifting at Kroger and was told have no contact with Kroger.
WLKY G.M. Glenn Haygood was aware of the situation, but said he couldn’t comment on it because it is a personnel matter. Bulleit did not appear on the air this morning.
According to the report, the value of the items was $20.49.
