19-year-old Emilia Barbu was jailed Friday evening after shoplifting at the Kroger on Northcreek Boulevard. Vasile was part of a group of suspects that were caught on camera putting various types of meat inside bags they had brought into the store. The loss prevention employee and an officer chased the subjects to the parking lot as they approached their vehicles. It was discovered that the subjects had concealed $391.33 worth of meat inside the bags. They couldn’t produce identification nor state where they lived, only that they were from Romania. Due to the high likelihood they would fail to appear in court, they were all taken into custody.
