Accused shoplifter cited
Northville Township police cited a 24-year-old Ypsilanti man on Oct. 13 for shoplifting at Meijer on Haggerty Road while his 2-year-old son sat in the cart.
According to police reports, the man was seen by store security filling a cart with 32 bottles of Tide detergent and then leaving the store without paying for them.
When township police arrived, the man told an officer there was no one to pick up the toddler because his child's mother was incarcerated.
