REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.– Delaware State Police say troopers have arrested a Rehoboth Beach couple in connection with a three-month shoplifting spree at a local Giant Food store.
 
Police said the incidents occurred from Feb. 4 until Sunday, May 8, when loss prevention officers at the Giant Supermarket, located at 19312 Lighthouse Plaza Blvd. in Rehoboth Beach, took David B. Sankey, 53, and his wife, Diana Sankey, 60, into custody at the store.  

Troopers said the investigation revealed the couple had been entering the store on an almost daily basis since the beginning of February and would conceal items such as meats, hygiene products, and other grocery items, on themselves, but would pay for other items in their cart at the checkout counter before leaving the store.  

The loss prevention officers had been conducting surveillance on the duo and were able to take them into custody without incident on Sunday afternoon, according to police. The total amount shoplifted over the course of the three months was more than $790, investigators said. 
 
David and Diana Sankey were each charged with 83 counts of shoplifting under $1,500.00 and 83 counts of third-degree conspiracy.  They were both released on $16,600 unsecured bond and ordered to have no contact with any Giant Food store.
