Stolen meat

is recovered

SPRING HILL _ A thief tried to keep stolen meat in his pants, but he lost the take during a chase, a Hernando sheriff's report said.

A Winn-Dixie official chased the man when he passed registers without paying, the report says. The man moved the beef tenderloin from his buggy to his pants, but it fell as he ran. He has not been found.
