A Florida man is locked up on a theft charge after allegedly stuffing cow tongues weighing 6.5 pounds in his pants and exiting Walmart without paying for the beef.
Jason Puckett was collared Friday after stashing the two beef tongues in his trousers inside the store in DeLand, a city about 35 miles north of Orlando.
The 44-year-old was spotted by a Walmart security officer who summoned cops after Puckett fled the store upon being confronted.
