Man Flashes An Albertsons Employee

By  | 

When you think of crimes happening in the city, most likely grocery stores don't come to mind. But Sunday evening that's exactly what happened.

Around 1:30 p.m., police were called out to the Albertsons on Austin Bluffs Parkway.

A man flashed a store employee, ran to his car in the parking lot and then drove through the Albertsons pharmacy pick-up window to get a prescription.

A security officer was able to get his license plate number before he got away.

Police say store surveillance video and the actions of the officer helped them track down 24-year-old Steven Thorne at his home. According to what police could see in the video, Thorne was in the same clothing from earlier that day.

He was charged with indecent exposure. He was served and released with a misdemeanor summons, according to police.

Store employees would not comment on the situation, but customers say they are glad police were able to find him
