DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A woman was arrested Tuesday after police say she tried to steal steaks from a grocery store.

Dayton Police were called to the Kroger in the 1000 block of South Smithville Road Tuesday around 6:00 p.m. on a report of shoplifting.

When officers arrived they found store security personnel had a woman in custody. Police learned that security personnel caught Tami Vance stealing steaks, worth nearly $100, from the store.

According to a police report on the incident, security witnessed Vance in the meat section of the store holding a number of steaks in her hand. She then walked down an aisle placing the steaks in her purse.

The report says store security watched her walk outside where they stopped her and brought her back inside.

The 45-year-old Vance admitted to stealing the steaks so she could sell them to someone at a Dayton bar.

Vance was arrested and taken to the Montgomery County jail where she is being held on preliminary charges of theft.
