Man Charged in Razor Blade Thefts From Pick 'n Save

Suspect allegedly stole razor blades and condoms from Pick 'n Save stores in Caledonia and Mount Pleasant.

A 46-year-old Sturtevant man is facing charges after he was allegedly caught stealing razor blades on multiple occasions from area Pick ‘n Save stores.

Bervis D. Sallis was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Wednesday with five counts of theft. If convicted, he faces up to 45 months in prison and $50,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Sept. 28, Caledonia police officers were called to Pick ‘n Save after Sallis went into the store and took six four carton packs of Gillette Fusion razor blades and left the store without paying. The stolen items were valued at $120.

On Oct. 9, officers were again called to the store after Sallis came in the day before and stole another $120 in blades without paying. After taking the report, the officer was then called to Kmart, where security officers saw Sallis stuff $100 in cologne in a garbage can, but left the items in the store before he left.

The officer contacted Sallis, who agreed to have his picture taken, then left the scene. The officer determined Sallis was the same person who stole the blades and he was also the same person who stole razor blades and condoms from the Mount Pleasant Pick ‘n Save on Sept. 10, Oct. 1 and 8.

He was later arrested at his home in the 1200 block of LaSalle Street. He’s currently being held in Racine County Jail on $250 bond.

Nothing like a clean shaven and fresh smelling criminal. By the way NAACP, he needs a ballot to vote OBAMA.

The Boy Scout Motto is, "Be Prepared", I guess they needed to be More Specific as to What for!
