A Florida man has been arrested after trying to steal four steaks and two candles from a grocery store. He tried to conceal his loot by stuffing the items down his pants.
UPI reports that Dannial Ashley, 31, faces charges of retail theft after store employees noticed him trying to make off with the steaks and candles stuffed down his pants.
Ashley surrendered the stolen property after being confronted by an employee and tried to flee the scene on foot. The employee chased him down and somehow convinced him to return to the store, where he was later arrested.
Ashley now faces a single charge of retail theft of under $100.
This is not Ashley's first brush with the law. According to Naples News, he was released on bond just two weeks earlier for aggravated assault. Authorities consider him a career criminal.
