Brodnick also is charged in a case involving criminal trespassing the day after the package theft incident, court records show.

Centerville police responded to the Costco store at the Cornerstone of Centerville on Feb. 28 around 8 p.m. after receiving a report of a theft in progress at the store, court records read.

“Brodnick exited through the emergency exit door and ran to the Kroger...as Costco employees chased after him,” court documents read.

Brodnick then is accused of running into the Kroger and through a door marked for employees only and out the back of the grocery store.

He was caught in the parking lot by Centerville police.

Several days later, on March 1, Brodnick was caught for a separate incident in which he now faces a drug related charge.

Police said Brodnick “did knowingly possess a...syringe used to ingest drugs,” according to court records.

Brodnick has been convicted in at least nine different cases since 2002, including convictions for burglary, robbery and drug charges, according to online records.

Brodnick is not in custody.
