The alleged thief reportedly used a bad check on a bundle of gift cards.
Lexington Police last week arrested a Winchester man who allegedly walked away from Stop & Shop with $3,000 worth of gift cards after writing a check the market couldn’t cash. According to Lt. Det. Michael McLean, the supermarket's security recently approached police with information about a man using a bad check to steal $3,000 in unknown gift cards. Police were able to trace the old check back to Edward J. King, 38, of 80 Irving St., Winchester, and called him into the station for an interview, McLean said. During his conversation with Lexington investigators, King reportedly made a comment that led to his arrest for larceny by check. The alleged crime actually took place about a month ago, according to McLean, who said it’s common for …

Surprise shoppers this Sunday.
Need any bread, milk, coffee, eggs or maybe even a flu shot? How about gas credits? Reducing gas prices is the reason some of us choose Stop & Shop.

This latest Stop & Shop offering should get everyone to the Bedford Street store this Sunday, Sept. 18. Anne Moulin, Stop & Shop’s public relations official, who coincidentally comes from Lexington, sent a press release to Patch giving us Saturday’s information. Apparently secret “Brand Patrollers” will be going up and down aisles watching what we buy. If they see us choosing Stop & Shop brands, which includes: Nature’s Promise; …

Caution: Bruins Fever still rages nearby in Bedford.
Different stores have different specialties or ingredients. Lexington's Stop & Shop offers more of one thing and less of another. Same holds true at the Bedford location. My favorite tea is usually in the Bedford location, so I headed toward the Great Road store. I ran into fellow Lexingtonian Colleen Blauer and we chatted about the Joseph Estabrook Elementary School rebuild and about the Robinson Road entrance or exit. From there we headed toward the produce section, where I found a huge crowd. Was there a run on apples or asparagus -- and why didn't they hit the Lexington Farmers Market instead? There Boston Bruin Defenseman Andrew Ference was sitting at a table signing autographs, holding babies (yup) and shaking hands. The line was so …
