Police say Grady William Rich­ardson, 43, of Fernwood Court, entered Kroger at 3128 Deans Bridge Road about 3:15 p.m., where he placed the steaks – worth more than $140 – into his jacket before trying to leave without paying, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s office report.

Before Richardson could leave, an employee stopped him for questioning. He agreed to stay until deputies arrived.

Richardson was taken to the Charles B. Webster De­ten­tion Center, where he was booked on charges of shoplifting, according to the report.

Not getting low on food.

Not getting low on food. Always some of that available. Maybe low on money. Rib eyes probably sell well at a discount.

dichotomy - Used to be a $500

dichotomy - Used to be a $500 freebie plus cost of item shop lifting and possible jail time. Is $500 worth the gamble?

Make him reimburse the store

Make him reimburse the store and the taxpayers for the expenses of deaking with his crime.

Punishment should involve community service.

if he only could have waited

if he only could have waited a couple more days after obamas state of the union i am sure kroger would have gave him the steaks free if he was black, he could have walked in the store and told the store manager that "obama sez dat y'all rich pee-poh gots all de mon-nee and fo you to gib some to me" and i am sure the store manager would have gladly gave "ole grady" all the ribeye steaks he wanted for free...

Really!

Did he leave the building? He was stopped by an employee inside and stayed around until police arrived. He must be the stupidest criminal ever!!! All he had to do is put the meat in a cart and walk away. They can't book you for anything and they can't hold you either until the police arrives. No crime would have been commited. Stupid!!!
