And now, the continuing adventures of Florida Man in “I’ll take that to go”:

A Florida man with a feast stuffed in his pants was arrested trying to sneak out of a grocery store, police said.

Maeli Alvarez-Aguilar, 26, was taken into custody on a petty merchant theft charge after walking out of the Rines Market IGA store in Indiantown on Dec. 15, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News on Tuesday.

An arrest affidavit viewed by said Alvarez-Aguilar “removed a full rack of ribs from his waistband.”

A further search uncovered nine pieces of fried chicken, two packs of hamburger buns and some mashed potatoes, and police said Aguilar-Alvarez — who smelled of booze and was intoxicated — swiped the items from the store.

Probably a good thing he was in Florida. A Californian swiping the same items would also be charged with not taking any vegetables.

    Hopefully they were for his own consumption and not for resale. I don’t want to imagine how the sales presentation would have gone.
