Woman banned from Bi-Lo for trying to steal meat

  • Follow Crime & courts

A woman has been banned for life from a Bi-Lo grocery store after she tried to steal some chicken wings and ribeye steaks.

The chicken was valued at $4.07 and the steaks cost $15.17, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report. The woman had cut the price and UPC tags off lower-priced items and affixed them to the meat, according to the report.

She went through a self-checkout lane, but was caught anyway. Bi-Lo managers did not press charges against the women but said she was banned for life from the store at 2803 Wrightsboro Road.

A good ribeye

I've had ribeye steaks that were good enough to kill for. I mean they can make you temporarily insane.

This really begs the

This really begs the questions:

Does she received gov't assistance (EBT), if not would she qualify to receive them, and Did she choose not to receive them even though she qualified, etc?

Depending on the answers, there are some good debates lurking around this article.
