Seattle, WA - Call him the real-life ham-burglar.

A 50-year-old man is accused of stealing all this meat from a grocery store in Seattle.

Police say an officer saw him pushing a shopping cart full of steak and ribs down a street late Wednesday night and questioned him.

He said he was taking the meat to a friend's house.

Another officer went to a nearby grocery store where workers confirmed the man had just left without paying for 13 packages of meat.

Workers had to throw away the $263 worth of meat because it had been taken out of the store.

The man was booked at the King County Jail.
