ELYRIA, Ohio - A Clevelander was arrested Wednesday for allegedly stuffing his pants full of seafood and red meat at a local grocery store.
According an Elyria police report, officers were called out to the Giant Eagle on Market Drive in Elyria at around 5:30 p.m. Thursday for a theft complaint.
Officers arrived and located John Peters, 36, who they said had stuffed roughly $163 worth of lobster and steaks down his pants.
The lobsters and steaks were recovered from the front, back and pockets of Peters' pants. Elyria police asked why he was stealing the seafood and meat, and Peters simply replied "it's just a habit."
Peters was later turned over to North Royalton police, who had an active warrant out for his arrest.
