June 1, 2012 at 12:38 PM

HOLMES BEACH, Fla., June 1 (UPI) -- Employees at a Florida grocery store restrained a Cuban sandwich thief by sitting on him until authorities arrived, police say.

Emmanuel Jaramillo was accused of stealing a $6.92 Cuban sandwich from a Publix in Holmes Beach, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

When confronted by the store's manager about the alleged theft, Jaramillo began to tussle with the manager.

The struggle became so escalated that several Publix employees had to sit on Jaramillo until authorities arrived, an arrest affidavit from the Manatee County Sheriff's Office indicated.

The incident caused about $300 damage to a display case and $38.68 to greeting cards, the affidavit states.
