The Naugatuck Police Department are on the lookout for a couple of alleged shoplifters after a late Sunday evening incident at the local Stop & Shop in town. According to a press release from the NPD, at 7:30PM last night (Sunday March 7), the two suspects entered the Stop & Shop located at 727 Rubber Avenue. Video shows them arriving in a white, newer model Nissan Pathfinder, possibly with Connecticut plates.

As the two suspects entered the store, they took out multiple reusable shopping bags, and started stuffing them with a tasty combo of shrimp, bacon, and Kool-Aid. After grabbing as many U-16-20's, Oscar Meyer Thick Cuts, Sharkleberry Fin and Cherry Limeaid Drink Mixes as they could fit into their bags, the two fled through the rear-fire escape door without paying for all of their merchandise.

The Iron Chef in my head is trying to think of a couple of combinations of those three ingredients in some way. Bacon-wrapped shrimp is the only thing edible that I can come up with. Blueberry Shrimp or Grape Bacon? No. Maybe they wanted to wash their shrimp down with Kool-Aid, and then wake up to some delicious stolen bacon the next morning.
