Police are searching for a gang of meat and beer thieves who have been preying on the Wrightsboro Road Kroger.

Deputies were called to the store Monday where they were informed by a loss prevention employee that four black males have taken items from the store on at least four occasions in the past month.

On Jan. 20, the bandits made off with three packs of shrimp, six packs of rib-eye steaks, four 30-pack cases of beer and some toilet paper. They returned two days later for two more packs of rib-eyes and then on the 27th for four packs of steaks.

On Jan. 29, the men hid 15 packs of steaks in their shirts before walking out without paying. According to the report, the four men returned four to five times in an hour that day. On the last two trips, two of the bandits are seen pushing beer out in their carts.

Somewhere in Augusta...

...there is an awesome multi-day party going on.
Or perhaps a new surf-and-turf restaurant has opened?
Perhaps a steak-out (sorry!) by the police at the Kroger parking lot would be in order....

I think if I was Kroger I'd

I think if I was Kroger I'd be looking for some different LOSS PREVENTION people. They seem to be kind of like the cops who only show up after your dead.

It's probably the same guys that are at the Bobby Jones exit begging for money every weekend.

"Deputies were called to the store Monday where they were informed by a loss prevention employee that four black males have taken items from the store on at least four occasions in the past month."
They probably had traded their food stamps for beer and cigarettes. Thanks, Great Society, liberals, democrats and black leaders.

It's not theft. They're entitled to take what they want. It's part of Obama's income distribution plan for America. If there's something you want just take it because you're entitled to it! Don't bother to work for what you want just take it and let everyone else pay for it.

Nothing to fear

They have nothing to fear. If they get nabbed, the most they will do is maybe 6-9 months in jail, if even that. Jails have turned into posh palaces compared to what they should indeed be: a deterrent. Three hots, a cot, clothes, medical, you sit around and watch television.

But they would probably get probation anyway.
