Local carnivores are adding a new layer to the ethics of eating meat.

For the second week in a row, police arrested someone for shoplifting meat from a Safeway Grocery store in the Mission District.

At about 9:20 a.m., police were called to the Safeway store on the 4900 block of Mission Street after getting reports of a shoplifter. When officers arrived, the reporting party told police that he saw a man come into the store and start shoplifting items. 

He then saw the man go to the meat aisle and shove a bunch of meat in his jacket. He walked right out the door without paying for the meat, according to police reports.

The victim showed officers the surveillance of the man stealing the meat and putting it in his jacket. Police found the man, who was arrested and booked into San Francisco County jail on suspicion of theft.

Last week, police busted another man stealing coffee and meats from the same store. The man reportedly stuffed meat in his cart then took it to what he thought was a secluded area and put it inside his jacket. A witness then called police.

The man suffered a heart attack as police arrested him.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
