A Dayton store clerk accused a couple of stealing beer and other items from her Circle K store, according to a police report.

The clerk told police a woman entered the store at 1918 E. Fifth St. and went directly to the beer cooler, selected several beer cans and placed them into her purse.

Then the woman’s male companion “made his way toward the rear of the store and selected several unknown items shoving them down his pants as he was walking,” the report said.

The clerk told police she believes the man selected several 20 ounce Bud Ice cans.

The pair then went to the register and tried to purchase another item, “but the food stamp card was declined,” the report said. They left without “attempting to pay for the items that they had concealed.”
