Police reporting another possible beef thief after $400,000 disappearance
A detached garage was pried open in this latest crime involving meat in Grand Island
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Grand Island Police are reporting another possible beef theft, just days after nearly $400,000 worth of meat disappeared.
This latest case doesn’t come close to topping that investigation but is concerning nonetheless.
A man living north of Fonner Park reports that someone pried open the door of his detached garage.
He said a gas can was stolen from inside, along with a package of individually wrapped hamburgers.
Police tell us he later found those items, along with a neighbor’s 1-pound tube of ground beef, in a nearby pickup truck.
This all happened early Wednesday morning on South Cherry Street.
So far, police have not identified any suspects.
