By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — A woman was charged with theft Monday after leaving the Elm Plaza Hannaford with more than $200 worth of unpaid groceries, police said.

Lou Ann Gedmint, 61, of South China was summoned by police but not arrested, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.

A store manager called police around 4 p.m. Monday when it was discovered Gedmint had allegedly pushed a cart filled with groceries out of the supermarket, according to Rumsey.

Security was able to follow her and provide police with the license plate number of the vehicle Gedmint left in, Rumsey said.

Officer Tim Hinton met with Gedmint later Monday and issued the summons for theft, Rumsey said.
