A Bridgeport resident was arrested Sunday afternoon on a shoplifting charge at Super Stop & Shop.

William Davenport, 41, of Midland Street, Bridgeport, was charged with sixth-degree larceny,

"Store security told police that a heavy-set white male walked out of the store with a grocery cart filled with merchandise concealed in green grocery bags," according to a police report. No value for the items taken was given.

After being confronted by store security personnel, the man ran out of the parking lot.

The suspect was later identified as Davenport, and the store security officer verified that was the subject he confronted earlier, the police report said.

Davenport was released from the scene with a misdemeanor summons.
