A 59-year-old Sun Valley man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly trying to steal a couple days’ worth of groceries from Vallarta Supermarket in Burbank, police said.

Javier Tejedagoody entered the market just before 3:30 p.m., picked up some empty shopping bags from the register and filled them with various items, including cookies, vegetables, oats, bread, snacks, salt and a six-pack of beer.

Holding $69 worth of groceries, Tejedagoody allegedly passed several open registers and left the store. Loss prevention officers called the police, who arrested the man on suspicion of burglary.

Tejedagoody was being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
