Supermarket employee gets fired for FILMING thieves running off with shopping cart full of merchandise
Store employees are told not to engage shoplifters for their own safety. There is some logic there. Firing someone for filming shoplifters, so that there is evidence of them shoplifting? One employee at a supermarket chain in Colorado discovered doing the right thing costs you your livelihood.
Here is the incident filmed by Santino Burrola, a now former King Soopers employee. It's owned by corporate supermarket chain Kroeger.
\u201cWhat\u2019s the street market value for laundry detergent?\u201d— Louder with Crowder Dot Com (@Louder with Crowder Dot Com) 1688648601
You can hear Burrola talking to the nogoodniks in question "Really bro? You gotta resort to this? The economy's not that bad." he made it a point to film the license plate too.
Burrola tells CBS Colorado his intention was to post the video on TikTok to see if people could identify the men. Then he went to work the next day and discovered he was fired.
I and the union rep sat down with them and King Soopers recommended termination and so I got fired that day. ... All I did was just record criminals and reveal them! I would never let any criminal conduct slide especially when it's happening right in front of me."
Like many corporate chains, Kroger has a zero-tolerance policy about "interfering" with people stealing merchandise. They issued a statement to the local news outlet claiming they are "disappointed by the increased level of crime across retail establishments" and they "remain committed to working in partnership with local law enforcement to address this issue," adding they have security matters in place to prevent theft. Spoiler: they're not working.
The store it would not comment on personnel matters, but they "value our hardworking associates." Not unlike how Lululemon values their associates when they fired two for calling the cops. Or how a seventy-year-old woman was fired from Circle K for defending herself and preventing herself from getting stabbed.
Here's the shameful thing. Kroger fired an employee whose video LED TO THE SHOPLIFTERS GETTING ARRESTED. Police were able to track down the vehicle used to the owner, who told police he lent it to his cousin.
The driver, Jorge Pantoja, 32, the man in the green shirt, was then contacted, arrested and stated he picked up two other males at the Light Rail station at I-25 and Belleview and offered them an opportunity to make some money. The men told the driver their names were Robert and Bugsy. Law enforcement is still trying to locate the other two men.
Pantonja is being held on felony charges and a Class 2 Misdemeanor of Theft/Shoplifting.
Side note: is there a street value to laundry detergent? This isn't the first video we've seen of thugs walking out with under $1000 worth of stolen Tide. I don't know if it's for resale value, or if people stopped paying for things when progressive policies made it easier for them.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
