Police responding to a report of a theft from the South Point Save-on Foods Tuesday afternoon took at least one individual into custody blocks away, in the 15500-block of 24 Avenue, between King George Boulevard and 156 Street.

At 3 p.m., four police vehicles lined the north side of 24 Avenue, and officers could be seen putting one man into the back of an SUV. The man was yelling expletives at the officers.

A variety of evidence bags were on the hood of one police vehicle.

The investigation is “in the early stages,” Sturko said.
