Police received a phone call from Shaw’s at about 1:45 p.m., shortly after a man in his mid-40s wearing a blue coat and blue hat tried to steal an assortment of meats from the store.
A Shaw’s employee reportedly confronted the man before he left the building. The man pulled several steaks out from inside of his coat, but would not relinquish an expensive pork tenderloin.
The mustached suspect fled the store on foot, then hopped on a bicycle and began pedaling down the bike path toward Warren.
Officers scoured the area and stopped two men on the bike path who matched the description of the suspect, but neither turned out to be the shoplifter.
Anyone with more information about the incident is asked to call Barrington police at 437-3933.
