BOLIVAR, Ohio -- A Giant Eagle employee with a hankering for lunch meat is facing theft charges after she was accused of stealing $9,200 worth of deli meat from a Giant Eagle store in Lawrence Township, Ohio.
The Canton Repository said the loss prevention manager received a tip that the employee had been nibbling on the meat at the deli, eating about three to five slices of ham every day over a course of eight years. She also ate salami.
Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Hale said the woman admitted to the theft on Friday.
Deputy Hale told the Canton Repository that the loss prevention manager calculated that the ham, that was eaten, was worth about $9,200. Due to the high dollar amount, the woman was charged with felony theft.
