Shopping At Boca Raton Publix Is A Pleasure, Shoplifting Is Not

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Boca Police were called to the Publix at 1001 South Federal Highway after Allen Lay allegedly left the story with a substantial amount of food. While leaving Publix with food is not exactly news — nor a criminal act — leaving with $424.60 worth of food is, at least when you do not pay. Lay was arrested and charged with grand theft. Store management told police that he made absolutely no attempt to pay. 
He was turned over to the Palm Beach County Jail and was later released on $5,000 bond.
