Lone Stranger: He tied the meat packages together with his saggy old man danglin' low ball sack.
gja: Sandusky thread again? So soon?
FirstNationalBastard: gja: Sandusky thread again? So soon?No, that's a story about an old man packing meat in a little can.
fawlty: And now, the rest of the story:After Grandpa was apprehended and the police work done, the supermarket took the packet of meat that had been in Grandpa's pants (and probably sitting on a table at room temp for hours afterwards), put in back in the cooler and sold it to some innocent customer who prepared and ate it and/or fed it to others. And Grandpa's under arrest foe being hungry. Thanks a lot Barack.
CraicBaby: I used to work in a grocery store. Meat is one of the most commonly shoplifted-items./paging CanadianCommie to the thread...
apaster16: Good luck fitting that in your pants...

thespindrifter: Not very often. If the meat was still cold, the market manager would inspect the package, and if the cellophane was undamaged, he would re-pack it and put it out. If the package was damaged, he'd make a judgement call on whether or not the meat was possibly contaminated. If he had any doubts, he'd bring in two managers for approval, mark it down, and sell it to himself. It had been my anecdotal experience at the time in several different stores that the meat market men were very honest, and would curse up a storm while destroying questionable meat.
thespindrifter: CraicBaby: I used to work in a grocery store. Meat is one of the most commonly shoplifted-items./paging CanadianCommie to the thread...Meat, cigs, and HBA. Back when tobacco was a big mover, we had a *gargantuan* rack at the front of the store, and we would often have sad attempts at smash-and-grabs. It was NOT easy to get cartons out of those racks, and we would enjoy the look of terror on the farkers faces when they realized all it did was slow them down while we moved in for the kill. If they ran, sometimes the cashiers would get lucky and trip the bastards, and gravity would save us the effort of the beat-down. Of course no matter what happened, "they fell down" was the obvious response when the police would ask what happened to their face(s).
CraicBaby: We had a no-chase policy, so we weren't allowed to chase shoplifters down if they ran.
CraicBaby: One time, one of our assistant managers (who was ex-military) chased a kid outside the store and an off-duty cop just happened to be walking by. The cop tackled the kid and promptly marched his ass back into the store.

starlost: Strobeguy75 years old, probably fixed income and tired of eating cat food so he gets busted for stealing meat.Thats some fine police work there Loui moved away from newport about a dozen years ago. that supermarket is not within walking distance for many people and i doubt newport has public transportation now. he needed a car. newport has/had great fishing and hunting and a lifetime license probably still costs almost nothing for a old timer. if he can stuff meat down his pants he could also sit in his car at little buffalo park/lake which is right in town while fishing and his fishing pole is 2 feet from the car. the park also allows hunting. the local schools close for a day or 2 during deer hunting season just so the kids can go hunting. if you have any friends at all if you can't hunt yourself they should be able to give you some meat if they get lucky.
reddfrogg: That's Perry County Pennsylvania's Florida.
