LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN) – A father and son are found guilty Wednesday by a jury of selling stolen items from a Kroger at Traders World.

In the first part of 2015, Kroger contacted the Warren County Sheriff’s Office to report a significant rise in thefts, according to the press release.

Undercover officers were sent to Traders World acting as though they had health and beauty products and household products, specifically Tide Pods, for sale at a very low price, making it clear that the items were stolen, according to the statement.

The two reportedly agreed to purchase merchandise on four occasions from the undercover officers.

They will be held in jail until they are sentenced on March 15, 2016.
