PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A 57-year-old man accused of stealing meat and laundry detergent from three grocery stores over the course of a month now faces several charges, according to court documents.

Barry Sanders was scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning after he was arrested earlier this month.

Court documents state that Sanders was in the suspect in three recent thefts.

On April 13, a loss prevention officer saw Sanders enter the meat department at a WinCo and take multiple seafood products out to his car without paying. The officer approached Sanders outside the store and recovered the products – steaks, chicken wings, shrimp, chicken thighs and other meat – valued at a total of $628.38, according to court documents.

On March 1, a Safeway manager reported seeing Sanders enter the store and stuff a bag full of meat and shrimp, prompting store employees to approach him. Court documents state Sanders gave back some of the meat, but still left with an estimated 50 to 60 bags of shrimp worth about $600.

On March 8, a loss prevention officer saw Sanders steal three New York steaks, seven Tide pods and five bags of detergent from the Gateway Fred Meyer. Court documents state he was seen leaving with the items without paying. The officer approached Sanders and recovered the products, which totaled $324.47.

Sanders has been charged with first-degree theft, two counts of second-degree criminal trespass and four counts of second-degree theft.
