Dominick’s Shoplifter Detained in Parking Lot

Alert employees at the Dominick’s at Palatine and Arlington Heights Road noticed a male, Hispanic shoplifter Tuesday at about 9:45 p.m. When the shoplifter was asked to stop, he fled. A male employee from Dominick’s pursued the shoplifter who was headed for a getaway car in the parking lot with a female driver. The female driver was screaming at the scene to release the shoplifter while the Dominick’s employee detained the shoplifter. Other Dominick’s employees called 9-1-1 before the shoplifter even left the store, so the Arlington Heights Police Department (with several squad cars) was on the scene in time to capture the shoplifter and the female accomplice.
