Raw meat thief....

Why waste the time to track this guy down? Nothing will be done anyway even if they catch him - catch & release. If he makes it to Court which is highly doubtful (call me a skeptic), the Judge will take pity on him - stealing food - and let him go anyways so it's just a waste of police resources.

Not to mention the picture / footage isnt released to the public until weeks later.

If this head been blasted by the media day after the theft i think it would be much more beneficial.

sorry but those employees that still chased him are pretty dumb...I mean just chalk it up as a loss...you went over and beyond your job description...if you got killed because of some meat...the only thing you would have is a picture and frame of you in the staff room and probably a note from the company saying sorry and thanks for trying.

Exactly the result thieves are hoping for and expecting.
Crime pays - quite well now and apparently with little to no consequences if caught.

With all those canned goods, no one thought to nail him with one?

He's what you call a "booster" ..

They go to stores , steal stuff and sell it to willing customers at a fairly good discount .

Then they get high..

, you tell him what you want and he would steal it.You paid him $20.00 for a couple hun worth if meat... so lets not pretend this crackhead is stealing because he is hungry

Well you've all followed the lead of reporter Alana Kelly (again !).

The news item should have read. "Meat Theft turns into Robbery".

Until our hero pulled the knife he was committing "Theft Under $5000, which is a Summary Conviction offense. With a maximum fine of $2000 or 6 months or both.

Pulling the knife makes it a Robbery While Armed with an offensive weapon, an indictable offense, for a first offense he gets 5 years.

So forget the "he just stole food", it's minor.

It's not.
