ORC Thief told Safeway LP "I'll be back" after being sentenced to 4 yrs in prison in 2012 - He's Back! & Safeway estimates that he and his girlfriend have stolen more than $5M from retailers over a decade  When prolific shoplifter Richard Lavern Remington was sentenced to four years in prison in 2012 and ordered not to return to Safeway, Remington blurted "I'll be back'' as he locked eyes with Safeway officials when he was led out of a Multnomah County courtroom. Store video surveillance caught Remington swiping deli food and DVDs on Jan. 13 from the same store, at 3927 S.E. 122nd Ave., according to Rick Whidden, Safeway's loss prevention director in the Northwest Division. On Jan. 15, 19, 27 and 29, he was observed shoplifting merchandise from Safeway stores in Gresham and Portland, stealing Tide detergent, Olay skin care products, Dove body wash, Dove shampoo and other hair care products and food, Whidden said. "He vowed to return to stealing at Safeway when he got out, and we in turn promised to send him back to prison if he did,'' Whidden said. "Turns out he's a man a of his word ... and so are we.'' Remington, 56, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on Saturday night on a parole violation and criminal trespass allegation.
