Man pushing shopping cart full of meat is arrested
SEATTLE (AP) — Police say the sight of a man pushing a shopping cart full of meat down a south Seattle street in the middle of the night drew an officer's attention.
Under questioning, the man said he was taking the cart full of steak and ribs to a friend's house.
When a second officer checked with a nearby grocery store, staff there said a man had just left without paying for his 13 packages of meat.
Police said they arrested the 50-year-old man Wednesday night.
And the $263 worth of meat? Store employees had to discard it because it had been removed from the store.
