Police say Sargent concealed the products under his shirt.
The beer, lobster and steak were recovered by the store when Sargent was stopped in the parking lot. He fled the scene before authorities arrived, but was later located by probation and parole officers, officials said.
Sargent has a court date set for June 13. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
