Cops Follow Meat Trail to Suspected Thief

MARION, Ind. - Forget about bread crumbs, police say a shoplifter in Indiana left a trail of meat behind him.

Johnny McCray had grabbed 19 packages of meat, some weighing more than a pound, from Lance's New Market in Marion, police said.

An officer tried to stop McCray in his car with the steaks and roasts, but police said he took off, chucking the meat out the window as he went.

Shortly thereafter, he abandoned the car near an apartment complex and was captured after he ran away.

Police spent about 90 minutes Wednesday retrieving the stolen meat from the streets of the city about halfway between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne.

McCray, 39, was held Wednesday at the Grant County Jail on preliminary charges of criminal recklessness, criminal recklessness with a vehicle, resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and theft.

Believe it or not, this is where I was born and grew up. Surprising to see this in the news here on the east coast.
