NU student charged with theft for eating a couple gummi peaches out of the bin
Retail value = 41 cents. A similar thing happened to someone I know. He opened a bag of sunflower seeds in the store and forgot to pay for them with the rest of his items. The store employee had called the police before he even made it to the cashier and insisted on filing a complaint. The honest mistake on a $1.49 bag of seeds cost him an arrest and a $250 fine.

Be careful if you like to gnosh on grapes while shopping for your produce.
