CHARLOTTE HILL, Md. (AP) — A Maryland man has been charged with stealing shopping carts from a grocery store and trying to sell them as scrap metal.
The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office says witnesses reported the man stealing the shopping carts from a Food Lion in Charlotte Hall on Friday. They said the man, identified as 60-year-old Calvin Ben Jones of Leonardtown, loaded the carts into his pickup truck and drove away.
Deputies later located the man at a scrap yard business where they also found a pile containing eleven metal Food Lion shopping carts.
Jones was arrested and charged with fourth degree burglary and theft.
