An employee at a New York grocery store is being accused of exiting the store with more than $1,000 worth of meat hidden in his pants.
The employee, Gregory Rodrioguez, was arrested on Tuesday after police were called about the theft at the A&P grocery store in Croton on Monday.
According to Newser, Rodriguez is now facing a charge of grand larceny.
A spokeswoman for the state police said that she doesn't know if the theft involved taking more than one trip to the store. She did say that the meat was taken in just one day, according to WBCO.
According to People, Rodriguez was taken to the Westchester County jail after he was arrested. The court clerk said that he didn't enter a plea nor was there a lawyer present at the time.
The type of meat that Rodriguez allegedly stole was not mentioned. He is not the first person to allegedly steal meat from a grocery store. Last year a man from Medford stole meat and fresh fish by stuffing them inside his trench coat.
The man from Medford was arrested and police found four ribeyes, haddock, lobster salad, some barbecue sauce and fresh swordfish on him. He was faced with a charge of shoplifting property worth more than $100.
