NAUGATUCK, Connecticut — Police are investigating the theft of shrimp from a Naugatuck grocery store on Sunday. Last month, a thief stole $1,000 worth of shrimp from a store in Plymouth. 

Police said Sunday evening around 7:30 p.m., two suspects entered Stop and Shop, at 727 Rubber Avenue. Video footage showed the suspects arriving in a newer model white Nissan Pathfinder, possibly bearing Connecticut plates.
