Boy exposes shoplifting father inside supermarket

15 July 2015, 11:42 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - There was drama at a major supermarket in Nakuru town after a young boy exposed his father who had shoplifted some items, leading to his arrest.

According to the supermarkets security, it was shopping as usual until the young boy challenged his father to pay some of the commodities hidden under his coat.

“We had not noticed anything till the boy raised alarm causing some commotion at the paying point,” noted Charles Odeny, the Chief security officer at the Ukwala Supermarket.

After shopping, the man is said to have gone to the normal queue for payments.

“After paying, I noticed some restlessness after his son started pointing and touching his pockets,” narrated Anne, a teller at the supermarket.

It’s the commotion that raised eyebrows and upon interrogation, the young boy revealed the unexpected.

“The man was indeed a shoplifter. We managed to recover powder milk, cooking fat, salt and sweets in the inner pockets of his coat,” Odeny said.

After being paraded at the supermarket entrance for an hour for shaming, he was handed over to security authorities with the young boy being left with the mother who was called to come for him.

Shoplifting in supermarkets and other large scale shops has become rampant within Nakuru town.
