Where's the beef?

Apparently it's not unusual for meat to be a common, coveted item of thieves.

Star Entertainment Editor Deirdre Long relayed this morning that she'd had four packs of meat stolen from the back of her car Monday at the Winn-Dixie on 202. She'd darted in side briefly to pick up some sour cream and a gallon of milk. When she came back, the ground beef, pork chops a steak and four chicken breasts had vanished.

This brought the response from Metro Editor Ben Cunningham, a former cop reporter, that we'd be amazed how often stores report that meat or poultry has taken flight, with the aid of a shoplifter.


Remember, he who steals meat .... steals someone's dinner.
