Florida Pair Arrested in $400 Meat Theft: Police

Volusia County Corrections

A Florida man and woman have been arrested after police say they stole nearly $400 worth of meat from a grocery store.

Deputies told The Daytona Beach News-Journal 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. 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 are being charged with grand theft and robbery.

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