BOLIVAR, Ohio – A grocery store employee with a hankering for lunch meat is facing felony theft charges after she was accused of eating $9,200 worth of deli meat from a Giant Eagle store in Ohio.
The Canton Repository said the loss prevention manager received a tip that the employee had been nibbling on the meat at the deli, eating three to five slices of ham every day over a course of eight years. She also ate salami.
The Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Hale said the woman admitted to the theft on Friday.
Deputy Hale told the Canton Repository that the loss prevention manager calculated that the ham that was eaten was worth about $9,200.
