Loretto Foodland is known for its low meat prices, but apparently they weren’t low enough for a Raywick man who was caught stuffing steaks down his pants last week.
According to Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Clements, on the afternoon of April 13, Shawn M. Gribbins, 28, of Clell Mattingly Road was observed putting steaks down his pants. When he was confronted by store management, the man started pulling the stolen merchandise out of his pants and throwing it on the ground, Clements said.
Gribbins fled the store, but deputies arrested him later that day, and he’s been charged with second-degree criminal trespassing, shoplifting under $500, alcohol intoxication in a public place and resisting arrest.
Clements said Loretto Foodland has filed a criminal complaint against Gribbins for theft of more than $40 worth of merchandise.
