You can't blame the police here. They have a duty to uphold the law. Shaw's must have contacted the police. Shaw's has the right to press charges or not to press charges. I say make the old guy pay for his loot and send him on his way!

Sounds like a romantic evening was ruined. Good thing he had a prescription for his viagra or he'd be facing another charge.

"Guy probably has $10 million in CD's."

I'm gonna guess he's probably living off a meek to modest retirement and is tired of having to decide between cat food and tuna because cat food is cheaper. As far as I'm concerned, the guy is 80 years old-he's more than paid his dues.

I think Shaw's got carried away by calling the police on an 80 year old shoplifter. I'm sure the police & court system have more important things to deal with.

West Hartford???? nothing better to do I guess. Go get the old ones cause the young ones are way too fast for you and your police dept. Shame on the reporter, the police & Shaws. The poor man probably foegot he had to pay. What about all those BIG time crroks when are they getting caught? Plenty of them in WEST HARTFORD.

Oh please, shoplifting is shoplifting regardless of your age. The scarier part is that he probably drove himself to the store and has no business behind the wheel of a car. More needs to be done to help seniors safely run their errands (in this situation an accomplice) LOL
