Ohio Man Steals 8-foot Pig Roaster

It's human nature to fantasize about swiping one of those mini pumpkins on our way out of the grocery store, thinking, "who will know?" One man found himself in this all-too-common situation recently, except instead of a mini pumpkin it was an 8-foot-long pig roaster. And instead of nobody knowing, he was caught on tape. Apparently, the temptation to host a backyard BBQ was too great to resist.

On Sept. 18 around 8:30 p.m., a 6'4", 215-pound man was caught on camera stealing a pig roaster from T.J. Butcker Block and Deli in Lakewood, 19 Action News reports. The video shows him loading the roaster, which is probably worth upwards of $2,000, onto a trailer then driving away in a whitish/silver, early-2000s Ford F-150. He is described as having short brown hair and and dark-framed glasses. 

Patrick Carney, we know you're upset about your feud with Jack White, but this is no way to deal with your emotions.

Anyone with any information — or anyone randomly invited to a large community barbecue in the next few days —  is encouraged to call Detective Jim Motylewski at 216-529-6765 or the dispatch center at 216-521-6773.
