Transient, dog take joy ride in stolen electric supermarket cart

It’s not unusual to see electric vehicles on Claremont city streets, but this must have been quite a sight. At approximately 10 p.m., James Jimenez entered Stater Bros. market and decided to take an electric handicap shopping cart for a spin outside the store. The 24-year-old transient placed his dog in the basket of the cart and traveled westbound on Foothill Boulevard to the Shell gas station before officers made contact with him. Mr. Jimenez returned the shopping cart to the store shortly thereafter. The business declined to prosecute the suspect.
