On July 8 at 1:53 PM, officers responded to the ABC Store located at 2225 Old Bridge Rd. in Woodbridge (22192) to investigate a fight. The investigation revealed two male patrons entered the store together and began selecting items. One of the men purchased a few items and exited the store while the other man continued putting items into a basket. The man with the basket then attempted to exit the store with the unpaid merchandise. When the manager confronted the man, a struggle over the basket ensued. During the altercation, the second man re-entered the store and intervened causing several bottles of alcohol to break before both suspects fled on foot. No injuries were reported. While investigating the incident, officers were informed of shoplifting that just occurred at another ABC Store located at 4255 Cheshire Station Plz. The investigation revealed the same two suspects entered the second store and began shopping. One of the men took a bottle of alcohol and exited without paying. A short time later, the second man walked out of the store with a hand basket containing several unpaid bottles of alcohol. Neither man was located. No injuries were reported.
