If William Sackman was looking to get an early jump on stocking up for the Memorial Day weekend, authorities in southwestern Illinois believe the St. Louis man went about it the wrong way. 53-year-old Sackman is accused of felony retail theft.
He allegedly tried to make off from a Shiloh supermarket May 20 with 10 containers of infant formula, 18 bottles of liquor, ribs and other merchandise without paying. The charge suggests the retail value of the items was more than $300.
He’s being held on 75-thousand-dollars bond.
