TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Topeka man is under arrest after allegedly swiping $150 worth of steaks from a grocery store, then trying to sell them at a nearby hookah bar.
The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/XXjR4M ) reports the 43-year-old man was taken into custody Sunday evening outside another bar. He was being held Monday on suspicion of theft, obstruction and disorderly conduct.
According to police, employees of Genie Hookah House called authorities saying a man carrying a milk crate full of steaks was trying to sell them to customers. When the customers declined, the man reportedly became upset and hinted he had a gun.
Police later found him outside a bar and grill a block away. The steaks were determined to have been stolen from a grocery store.
