    Bar codes – they’re used for a reason…

    • Anonymous

       Yes, they are there for a reason. If the barcode rings up higher than the advertised price for the item though, the advertised price reigns. In this case, the advertised price was falsified.

    You beat me to it Thomas, i believe they use bar codes there now.  Not sure though.  Not a smart cashier if she changed the price on register.

  • Doubt this is the first time shes done that! Prob just hasnt got cought before or they may of been watching her thinking shes done it before.

    How about a higher resolution pic?

  • Guest

    I realize what she did was wrong and remember her pic for the next time she comes in and tries this trick but seriously… should the police and public resources be occupying their time on bigger things like bank robberies and pharmacy hold ups?

      No, because this is why you see store prices rise continuously

       Stealing is stealing and it’s against the law.  Police enforce the laws. I hope this explains the process to you.

  • if she needs the laundry soap that bad,what 5 or 6 bucks ? the cop gets 20bucks and hour the judge gets 100Gs a year and the list goes on.It will cost the state and local tax payers 10s of thousands of dollars for a 10 dollar crime.You wonder why communities are going broke

    sounds like a store owners problem to me, surely not worth the tax dollars spent on recouping 5 or 6 bucks. c’mon store owner do your job on your own.

  • Nice….they might as well delete the image of the woman. Or draw a stick figure instead.

    The question should be: Doesn’t the newspaper have better and more important stories to cover?

    Is there a smaller picture available?

       LOL!!

  • Anonymous

    Increasingly, newspapers are becoming an arm of law enforcement. More mug shots than you’d find in a china store. I understand covering major crimes, including photos of suspects, but the woman in the photo above has now been  found guilty before even being arrested. Never mind how police use newspapers to do their jobs, but do reporters and editors have to agree to do their jobs?

    Have you ever been to the Thriftway in Orono? They buy half their items from Walmart and redistribute them at a higher price!!!  I’m not saying what she did is right but at least she paid for it. 

  • Anonymous

    If you have ever been to the Thriftway in Orono, you would know that half of their items were bought from other stores, including Walmart, and re-sold at a higher price. I’m pretty sure Equate and Great Value are only trade marked as Walmart brands. Case in point, what she did may be considered wrong, but what goes around, comes around.

    You’ve got to be kidding, is it April Fools Day?

    You have to be kidding..APB…..Car 54 where are you? Call Detective Barney Fife with any info. Did anyone even check the laundromat next door before calling?

    Wow, this made the BDN? I hope you made more than the $0.40 difference in the rice tags she switched! Wow.

  • Anonymous

    I’ve calle the Bangor PD to remove a transient from the doorway to my apartment and they couldn’t be bothered to drive 2 blocks from the station to help me. Now the BDN is helping a grocery store recoup a $o.40 loss?? Just wow.
