Wal-Mart not going after man who took bread, milk

UNION, S.C. (AP) - Union police say a Wal-Mart store is choosing not to pursue charges against a man accused of stealing milk and bread ahead of an advancing winter storm.

WHNS-TV reports that police were called to the store at around 1:20 p.m. on Tuesday after an employee noticed a shoplifter on surveillance video.

According to the police report, a man is seen on camera putting roughly $11 worth of items including a gallon of milk and a loaf of French bread into a bag. Authorities say the video shows the man walk around the store before leaving without paying.

The worker said he got the man's license tag number but did not want to pursue charges.
