Police: Thief busted with ‘smart food’

Here's a news release from Spokane Valley police spokesman Sgt. Dave Reagan titled, “Stolen “Smart Food” No Help to Thief.”

A 24-year-old Spokane man was arrested Tuesday evening after he attempted to steal $329 worth of Blu Ray DVD’s and an egg roll, a burrito and an item labeled “smart food.”

Officer Lamont Peterson was called to the East Sprague Avenue and North Sullivan Road Fred Meyer store about 7 p.m. after a security officer stopped Mordekye A. Layman as he attempted to leave the store with the items hidden in a canvas bag.

Peterson arrested Layman for third-degree theft and returned the property to the store.

Gunshot victim eats before seeking help

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police say a 25-year-old Connecticut man who was shot twice after buying a sandwich at a New Haven deli went home and ate his lunch before going to the hospital.

Miguel Soto said he was leaving the deli Tuesday when he heard three gunshots. One bullet hit him in the left leg, another in the groin. Police say he went home and ate the sandwich before asking his father to take him to a hospital.

Police did not say whether Soto realized immediately that he had been shot, or if he decided the injuries were not serious enough to require an immediate hospital trip.

Officers say his injuries were not life-threatening. A message was left Thursday for a New Haven police spokesman, and no arrests were immediately reported.
