Man stuffs meat in pants, flees, but not before tossing license plate, which deputies use to find him

An Oakland Park man stuffed $53 worth of meat down his pants, darted out a grocery store and then ran over a man's foot as he fled in his car, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office report.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Richard Homer Smith, 56, remained in jail Saturday and was charged with petty theft, failing to stop and remain at an accident involving injury and improper backing.

He was arrested about 9 p.m. Thursday for the June 2 incident at Publix at 1003 E. Commercial Blvd. in Oakland Park. He was tracked down thanks to his license plate, which he tossed before fleeing, the Sheriff's Office said.
