SAN ANTONIO -- Police have arrested a man who they say shoplifted from at least two HEB stores in San Antonio by stuffing T-bone steaks down his pants.
In one case, the suspect is accused of pulling out a hunting knife and swinging it back and forth at prevention loss officers who tried to stop him.
Wesley Corley, 51, was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery.
Prevention loss officers at the HEB at Blanco and Loop 1604 told San Antonio police they first saw the suspect on May 3 when he entered the store and was observed stuffing a T-bone steak and other items into his pants.
The officers and the store manager tried to stop Corley and his accomplice as they walked out of the front exit door, however, they backed off when Corley allegedly took out a hunting knife and began swinging.
Three days later, prevention loss officers at the HEB store at 6818 S. Zarzamora apprehended a man they said was also hiding meat in his pants.
San Antonio police were called in both cases and reviewed security footage. Police said they determined the suspect to be the same in both cases.
Police said Corley was placed in a lineup and identified separately by prevention loss officers at both HEB stores.
