If you haven’t heard, Tide recently overtook your mom’s television as the go-to item for junkies and crack-heads to steal. A 44-year-old man was nabbed by police on Tuesday after trying to steal 21 packages of pricey meat cuts and eleven bottles of cleaning detergent from a Glendale Vons, a combined value of $864. And he may have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for the store’s meddling loss prevention team, one of who took a punch from the meat-thieving mastermind, who was pulled over shortly after hitting the road.
