3 accused of stealing meat from grocery stores
Three people were arrested in Friendswood over the weekend after grocery store employees reported that they had swiped some meat and smuggled it out in their pants.
Friendswood police said they were called to the HEB at 701 W. Parkwood at 1:08 p.m. Sunday. Employees provided a description of the suspects and their car, and officers said they captured them fleeing down South Friendswood Drive.
During the investigation, police said they found meat from both the HEB and a Kroger at 3135 FM 528.
During a search of the suspects' vehicle, police said they also found a bottle of Metoclopramide where one of the suspects had been sitting. The suspect did not have a prescription for the anti-nausea drug, police said.
Laura Wylie, 45, of Channelview, David Glaze, 23, of Channelview and Joseph Smith, 40, of Channelview were each charged with misdemeanor theft and held on bail of $1,000 each.
Smith was also charged with possession of a dangerous drug, a misdemeanor with a $1,500 bond.
