Greensboro, NC (WFMY) -- Police have issued a Crime Stoppers alert in hopes of tracking down a man they say stole $450 worth of beef tenderloins from a North Carolina grocery store.

Officers say the man walked up to the meat counter of the Lowes Foods store on the 6300 block of Old Oak Ridge Road, shoved the beef into his pants and then walked out. Officers aren't sure what sort of vehicle he was driving or which way he went when he left.

It might sound like a silly crime, but it's something that costs everyone.

"[Grocery store theft] occurs so often that these stores are suffering the loss," Greensboro police Det. CF Holliday said. "It's easy to think that a big-name store ... can afford that. But this is just one guy on one day. You add that up several times a day or throughout the week and you're talking about thousands and thousands of dollars of loss."

If you know anything that could help track down the man, call Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000. Or text the keyword "badboyz" and your tip to 274637. All Crime Stoppers calls are anonymous.
