A man who was recorded as homeless was recently apprehended when he was suspected of dumping bleach on top of consumable items for sale at Southern California grocery stores.
In a time period spanning from December 14 through January 20, in four separate incidents, grocery stores in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Westwood, and West Hollywood reportedly discovered that there was bleach spilled on top of some of the consumable frozen products intended for public purchase. The main items that were found to be affected were reported as ice and frozen shrimp.
The stores were equipped with CCTV, and when the federal authorities reviewed the captured material recorded during the periods of time that the incidents were reported they saw what appeared to be a man taking bleach bottles off of the shelves at each of the stores. The man was then shown on the video as he allegedly went to the frozen sections and appeared to dump the contents of the bleach bottles over the ice in coolers in some cases, and frozen shrimp in others.
