    A Vermont man accused of stealing beer, lobster and Angus steak from a supermarket faces retail theft charges, authorities say.

    State police said they were notified of a retail theft/trespassing incident at Hannaford Supermarket in Rutland on Wednesday.

    An investigation found that Anthony Sargent, 53, of Rutland City, had gone into the store in violation of a notice against trespass and stole $105.63 worth of items, police said.

    Police say Sargent concealed the products under his shirt.

    The beer, lobster and steak were recovered by the store when Sargent was stopped in the parking lot. He fled the scene before authorities arrived, but was later located by probation and parole officers, officials said.

    Sargent has a court date set for June 13. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
