Man Arrested At Walmart For Sampling Raw Meat From Packages

A man in Pennsylvania was arrested yesterday after he allegedly chose to forgo the traditional route of shoplifting food from Walmart and instead decided to just chow down on some raw meat right there in the store.

According to local news reports, Walmart staff spotted the man helping himself to bits of raw ground beef and raw stew beef from wrapped packages which he would then place back on the shelf. It’s estimated the retailer is out $24.53 because of the shopper’s shenanigans.

The hungry fella was followed out into the parking lot by a loss prevention officer, who pointed him out to a cop that just happened to be on the spot. He was arrested at Taser point and charged with retail theft.
