We can confirm that an incident occurred in our Tallahassee store involving Jameis Winston on 4/29/14. Publix followed our shoplifting guidelines and procedures and enlisted the assistance of Leon County Sherriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s office has received our full cooperation. While we are unable to share our loss prevention tactics/techniques for obvious reasons, we can say that our processes and thresholds were fair and consistent.

An arrest was not made, but rather, a civil citation was issued. Leon County offers a diversion program called Adult Civil Citation. It is our understanding that Mr. Winston has agreed to participate in this program and we have agreed to the terms as called upon by the program. However, with this being an open case, we are unable to provide additional information. We would defer additional questions to the Leon County Sherriff’s Office.
