On May 29 at 3:15 p.m., Santa Monica police officers responded to a report of a petty theft at Haggen market, located at 2627 Lincoln Blvd.
Upon arrival, officers met with a loss prevention agent of the store who detained an individual, later identified as Micah Boyer, for theft. The lost prevention agent told officers Boyer came into the store and selected a three-pack of beer and a bottle of whiskey from the shelves and then left the store without paying for the items.
The loss prevention agent stopped Boyer outside the store, identified himself and brought Boyer back into the store. The loss prevention agent called police and demanded a private person’s arrest for the petty theft.
Boyer was arrested and booked for petty theft. Boyer’s bail was set at $1,000.
