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.

    Deputies found ribeye steaks, ground beef, bacon, pork ribs and a gallon of bleach in the car totaling over $361.00
