Incident of the day

On Feb. 14 at approximately 4:15 p.m., a security guard at the Whole Foods in the 500 block of Wilshire Boulevard was advised by management to monitor two subjects, one later described as Lawrence Hardimon, 24, of Santa Monica, and the other as a black male approximately 30 years of age, standing in the deli line ordering multiple food items.

The security officer noticed that, upon receiving the items, they began to walk toward the front of the store where they both walked past all cashiers and exited without paying.

When approached by the security officer, one suspect ran off and Hardimon was detained.

Hardimon was placed under private person’s arrest until an officer arrived.

A records check by the officer found he had outstanding warrants. Hardimon was booked for shoplifting and burglary. His bail was set at $43,000.
