YORK, Pa., March 28 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man allegedly trying to steal a bag of shrimp from a supermarket was arrested with the frozen bag of seafood stuffed in his pants, police said.
A store security officer and a customer at the Weis Market in Dover Township detained Brian Troy McDaniel, 37, the (York, Pa.) Daily Record/Sunday News reported last week.
The store officer told police he saw the suspect enter the frozen foods section of the store and take two packages of shrimp from the freezer.
McDaniel then allegedly "proceeded to pull the front of his jeans away from his body and deposit one of the bags of shrimp into his crotch area," police said.
York police did not say what McDaniel did with the other bag of shrimp.
The store officer tried to stop McDaniel as he was leaving the store, but McDaniel refused to stop and attacked the officer, then broke free and ran across the parking lot where the security officer and a store customer caught him and detained him until police arrived, authorities said.
McDaniel was charged with robbery, retail theft and simple assault then freed on $10,000 bail.
