Health officials dispose of stolen pork

By The Associated Press

— Arkansas health officials are disposing of $42,000 worth of meat after a Little Rock truck driver was accused of not delivering the hams and hot dogs and selling them himself from a refrigerated trailer.

Police Sgt. Cassandra Davis said Robert Lee was arrested Thursday on suspicion of theft by receiving after an officer spotted him and another man unloading a trailer containing 549 boxes of hot dogs and 384 hams.

Davis says Lee was under contract to pick up the pork in South Carolina on Nov. 13 and drop it off in Miami. A police report says the meat’s owner, Smithfield Hams, told police the meat had been missing for two weeks and was presumed stolen.

Lee remains jailed and authorities didn’t know whether he had an attorney.

Well, unsaid (or reported) is HOW the PD is disposing of it. Being subject to spoilage, I trust it's being distributed to soup kitchens and benevolant groups in and around LR for their good uses. Perhaps the next edition will relate the how, when, where, etc. Merry Christmas.

This meat was on a reefer. If he kept the reefer going this meat should be OK, but on the news they said if anyone bought any, dispose of it and not eat it.
