21-year-old Megan Buterbaugh went into the Family Dollar in Union Square on July 24 and stole two boxes of feminine hygiene products and a cordless phone, according to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office. She then went to Save-A-Lot and stole boneless chicken, bologna, sliced ham, bratwurst and mustard, and then ran away.
She continued to run after police spotted her and ordered her to stop. When they finally did stop her, Buterbaugh didn’t give Chief Chris Lucco her correct name, according to court papers.
Buterbaugh is charged with flight to avoid apprehension, false identification and retail theft. She waived her preliminary hearing and remains jailed on $10,000 bail.
