Looks like one Christina Walcott of Houma and her boyfriend allegedly attempted to steal ribeye steaks worth $75 from the Rouse’s on West Main Street. The pair reportedly concealed the beef in a red shopping bag, but only paid for chicken at checkout. When confronted by store personnel, her boyfriend fled the scene, leaving Christina behind to face arrest for theft of less than $500.
$75 buys quite a LOT of ribeyes–according to this week’s sales circular, ribeyes are $6.77 a pound. YOU try hiding 11 pounds of meat and sneaking out of store; it’s no wonder the plan failed.
I hope Mr. Ran Away in a Moment of Crisis had the decency to bail her out.
