DECATUR, Ill. (AP) — A central Illinois man is in jail on suspicion of stealing steaks from a Decatur grocery store and after stuffing them in his pants.
Court documents show the 54-year-old man was arrested Thursday after police responded to a Kroger grocery in Decatur. The Herald & Review newspaper in Decatur reports that officers say they found two packages of meat in the man’s pants and more in his car.
Court officials say the man has not been formally charged and doesn’t have an attorney. Macon County court officials say his initial court appearance is scheduled for Friday.
Police says surveillance video shows a man stuffing two steaks into his pants and leaving. Five minutes later he comes back into the store and puts two more steaks in his pants.
