Man gets 10 years for meat theft
A South Carolina man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after a jury convicted him of shoplifting, according to this report:
The trial began on Tuesday with jurors hearing testimony from two employees of Reid’s grocery store of Orangeburg. The employees said they confronted Zachary Aug. 26 after noticing he had a large, bulky object underneath his shirt.
The incident began around 8:13 p.m. when an employee noticed Zachary carrying an $80 side of New York strip in his hands.
A few minutes later, he noticed the bread box-sized side of beef was gone and a large bulk had appeared on Zachary’s person, according to a police report.
