Delaware Couple Accused of Shoplifting From Supermarket for 3 Months

A Rehoboth Beach couple has been accused of stealing almost daily from a local supermarket for nearly three months.

Master Cpl. Gary Fournier says 53-year-old David B. Sankey and 60-year-old Diana Sankey would go into the supermarket and hide items such as meats and hygiene products on themselves, before paying for other items in their shopping cart at the checkout counter.

The two were arrested on Sunday and charged with 83 counts of shoplifting under $1,500 and 83 counts of conspiracy.

Police say an investigation by the store's security officers revealed the pair shoplifted items with a total value over $790 during their numerous visits.

It is unclear whether they have attorneys.
