Officers’ interest in the occupied car was piqued by a license plate on it, which appeared to have been altered because its letters were crooked.

Sort of wily coyote

Ditch the car

An employee at the Cub Foods in the 3900 block of Silver Lake Road told police July 11 that three people exited the store with a cart full of groceries without paying for the merchandise. Apparently aware they’d been noticed, the trio ditched the cart and the food and got in a car and left.
