Man Accused of Stealing Nearly $90,000 Worth of Meat

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Where's the beef?

A packing plant on President's Island discovered it was missing hundreds of pounds of meat worth almost $90,000.

Ronnie Strickland, police said, was part of the night shift cleaning crew at Ledbetter Packing when they said he and nine other employees made off with a bunch of meat.

Police said the suspects were leaving boxes of meat out by the dumpster and then people in cars would pull up and retrieve them.

Police said the took all kinds of meat and hundreds of pounds of it.

It all allegedly happened during a 10-day period in late June.

Police said some of the thefts were caught on camera.

Still no word on whether the other nine suspects are still at large.
