ALLEN PARK — Three vape cartridges, collectively valued at $92, were stolen the afternoon of Aug. 20 from Shell, 19350 Ecorse Road.
The store clerk said the thief distracted him by asking for items which required the employee to turn his back to him. A later review of surveillance camera footage shows the man pocketing the vape cartridges.
The man returned to the store a day later, and when the clerk confronted him about the theft, his companion hurried the man out of the store, and the two drove off in a red 2006 Dodge Caravan. The store clerk provided the license plate number to police officers.
The thief was described as a black man 18 to 20 years old, wearing a black Nike sweatshirt and black sweat pants.
