A Statham police officer responding to the Piggly Wiggly regarding a shoplifting complaint last week met with a store employee who told him that she observed a man on the store's surveillance video a stuff a family-size pack of steaks down the front of his pants.
She said she recognized the suspect from a picture that she had recently seen in a paper that publishes arrest photos.
The suspect was recognized by the Statham officer immediately because he had previously arrested the man for allegedly shoplifting a pack of hamburgers by putting them down the front of his pants at a Dollar General Store.
The officer took warrants for the suspect and arrested him the next day without incident at his residence on Sunset Drive.
