BEND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Bend couple they say stole more than $27,000 of goods from Portland and Central Oregon Safeway stores.

The Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1MtLvi2 ) that Redmond police say they arrested a 27-year-old woman and 32-year-old man Friday after executing a search warrant at their home and finding several thousand dollars’ worth of suspected stolen merchandise.

Redmond Police Sgt. Curtis Chambers says he believes the couple was selling the items online in places like Craigslist and eBay.

He says Safeway’s Organized Retail Crime Team contacted police in July after investigating the thefts.

In addition to theft charges, police say the man was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and endangering the welfare of minors because three young children were in the house.
