TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) - The Temple Police Department is investigating the theft of more than $2,000 in meat from a local H-E-B.

It happened Friday, April 15 shortly after 3:30 p.m. at the store located in the 3000 block of S. 31 Street.

Police said a store employee initially noticed two women leaving the store with large quantities of unpaid meat products in a shopping cart.

Video footage obtained by KWTX shows a woman wearing an H-E-B shirt, in a parking lot, attempting to take back the shopping cart with meat products.

The suspect, however, continues to hold onto the cart and keeps loading meat products into the back of a white Chrysler 300 with paper plates 48632Z4.

The women eventually get into the Chrysler 300 and drive away.

“It was full of meat. A lot of meat,” said Gilberto Quintero, the man who recorded the footage from inside his car.

“Then they just drove off, like Bonnie and Clyde,” he said.

Anyone with information should contact the Temple Police Department at 254-298-5500.

To remain anonymous, contact the Bell County Crime Stoppers at 254-526-8477.
