Vernon police have arrested a suspected shrimp thief after he went back to the supermarket to pay for the stolen seafood, according to police.
Police said David Demeusy, 49, of Tolland, shoplifted a bag of shrimp worth almost $100 from Stop and Shop on Wednesday morning.
Officers responded to the market at 8:42 a.m. and learned that employees were able to get the license plate number before the shoplifter fled.
Later in the day, Demeusy went back to the store to pay $95.92 for the shrimp and was arrested, police said.
Demeusy posted a $5,000 bond and is expected in Rockville Court on Dec. 15.
