Meat Stolen from Safeway Grocery Store -- Again

it's worth paying for
Local carnivores are adding a new layer to the ethics of eating meat.

For the second week in a row, police arrested someone for shoplifting meat from a Safeway Grocery store in the Mission District.

At about 9:20 a.m., police were called to the Safeway store on the 4900 block of Mission Street after getting reports of a shoplifter. When officers arrived, the reporting party told police that he saw a man come into the store and start shoplifting items. 

He then saw the man go to the meat aisle and shove a bunch of meat in his jacket. He walked right out the door without paying for the meat, according to police reports.

The victim showed officers the surveillance of the man stealing the meat and putting it in his jacket. Police found the man, who was arrested and booked into San Francisco County jail on suspicion of theft.

Last week, police busted another man stealing coffee and meats from the same store. The man reportedly stuffed meat in his cart then took it to what he thought was a secluded area and put it inside his jacket. A witness then called police.

The man suffered a heart attack as police arrested him.

I was at the Safeway on Church and Market the other day around 1AM and a man was caught walking out with pre-made ribs in his jacket. He agreed to return it but started to verbally threaten everyone around when the security guard told him to 'get a job'.


One time my friend broke a picket line at Safeway. However, when he came out of the store, he lifted up his shirt to show the people striking that he had a couple of stakes in his pants. Unfortunately he did it in front of a security guard and had to give it back and agree to never go in the store again.
