A man and woman have been arrested in central Florida after police say they stole more than $300 worth of meat from a grocery store.
Deputies said that 48-year-old Doris Rowe and 54-year-old Kenneth Edwards drove 26 miles to a Winn-Dixie store in DeLand where a store manager saw Rowe stuffing meat products and other items into her pants.
I wonder if they stuffed some A-1 Steak sauce in there?
Deputies say the manager stopped Rowe and she hit the manager in the neck, dropping pork ribs, two packs of detergent and three water filters. Rowe fled the store and got into Edwards' truck. Deputies apprehended them at a traffic stop. Both were charged with grand theft and robbery.
Deputies found ribeye steaks, ground beef, bacon, pork ribs and a gallon of bleach in the car valued at $361.00.
Hillsborough County deputies say the women entered Ulta Beauty Supply in Citrus Park around 3:45 p.m. on March 15 with a bag concealed in one of their purses. Once inside, they pulled out the bag, loaded it up with perfume and cologne, then left, driving away in a bright blue Hyundai. Fox Tampa Bay reports that they made off with expensive designer brands such as Chanel, Polo, Mont Blanc, Yves Saint Laurent and Michael Kors.
Police are are asking the public to help identify the suspects
