Deputies: $4,000 in alcohol, fried chicken stolen by thieves in Palm Coast Publix stores

PALM COAST, Fla. — Flagler County deputies need help identifying three people accused of stealing nearly $4,000 worth of items in a series of thefts at Publix stores.

Deputies said the alleged thieves were seen on surveillance video shoplifting champagne, wine, beer, food and reusable shopping bags Thursday.

The first theft happened at a Publix on Belle Terre Parkway, where about $600 worth of wine and champagne was stolen, deputies said.

The second theft happened about an hour later at a store on Palm Coast Parkway where the thieves got away with $2,848 worth of merchandise, including wine, champagne, a box of fried chicken and six reusable Publix shopping bags, according to deputies.

An hour after that, deputies said the thieves targeted another Publix on Belle Terre Parkway, but a witness confronted the thieves and they rushed out of the store, deputies said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office.
