No matter how you slice it, 15th Ave QFC thief tried to steal a lot of meat

Here are some more details on an unusual theft attempt we first reported back when it happened in the last week of March. SeattleCrime offers the prime cut:

A man was arrested for attempting to steal $1,000 in boneless beef tenderloin and attacking a security officer with a screwdriver at the Capitol Hill QFC on 15th and Harrison, according to the police report. The security guard was shaken-up, but was not hurt.

Police were called to the scene around 9:15 p.m March 23 when a caller reported that a man was loading boxes of beef into his blue Saturn station wagon.

Seattle Times raises the, um, stakes, reporting the attempted theft total as close to $5,600. We’ll follow up on this to find out some more about the man SeattleCrime called the Hamburglar.

  1. Some security guards standby idly and watch as a girl gets beaten.

    Other security guards chase a dude and jump him over steak.

    Priorities, etc.
