Sausages stashed down pants
A MAN has been caught stuffing sausages down his pants in a bizarre alleged theft at an Innisfail supermarket.The 38-year-old Innisfail man was charged with stealing after he was seen leaving IGA Innisfail about 6.15pm on Friday.
Police allege he had items of meat concealed in his shorts and several other items in his pockets.
The items were not returned to sale, police said.
The man will appear Innisfail Magistrates’ Court on November 30.
It's not the first strange shoplifting case at the store.
In July, shoplifters allegedly walked out of the same supermarket with whole trolley loads of stolen goods, two days in a row.
And in August, a woman was placed on six months’ probation after she tried to walk out of Cairns Big W and Woolworths with $1500 of stolen groceries and clothes for her children.
