Man has good taste in meat, lousy arrest record

April 6, 2009

A 57-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested for retail theft after he took $87 in rib eye steaks and beef tenderloins from Metcalf's Sentry Foods, 6700 W. State St., at 3:40 p.m. April 2.

He put rolls of toilet paper around the walls of the cart and put the meat facing down in the middle in attempt to conceal it. Then he went up and down the aisles, transferring the meat to his coat pockets and under his clothing as he went along.

A background check on the man showed he had 58 prior arrests, mostly for retail theft.

He was also arrested for bail jumping because he was out on bail for a Feb. 11 theft at Walgreens on State Street.
