Hey! This one is gross. On Tuesday, Jeffery Arthur Feehan plead guilty to six charges, which included stealing from two Real Canadian Superstore grocerystores in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The Guardian reports that it was from these stores, that Mr. Feehan stole $71.32 worth of chicken, bacon, and steaks.
It appears that Mr. Feehan’s moves were not so smooth, Truro Daily News writes that the store’s staff “watched him put food in a basket, then take it into the bathroom where he stuck it down his pants.”
That’s not the weirdest part, though. Crown attorney (crown attorney is a government’s prosecutor in criminal cases in Canada) Valerie Moore mentioned that the store was able to get their food back so they could properly sell it. You know, the food that had been down this dude’s pants in the bathroom. This obviously gave Ms. Moore pause as she said, “That sounds strange. They must have been well wrapped in plastic given that they were down his pants.”
According to The Huffington Post, Loblaw Inc. (the company that owns Real Canadian Superstore) has not yet replied to questions about whether they endorse things like selling meat that was stuffed down somebody’s pants in a bathroom. For what it’s worth, and the good lord knows you shouldn’t take an anonymous internet comment as gospel, but someone who identified themselves as a store employee wrote as a comment on The Guardian’s website:
I work here in a different deparment [sic]. I was told that the meat department was given the meat back BUT THEN THREW IT OUT. I have seen the guardian not get there [sic] facts straight before and here they go again. I know the people here would not give this meat out!
So uh, maybe we wasted your time.
