John Brown Arrest Affidavit
Indian River County, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - John Brown, a 62-year-old Vero Beach man, was jailed Saturday after he was allegedly caught putting stolen 'hot smoked' sausages down his pants.
According to an arrest affidavit, Brown strolled into a local Hess fueling station, grabbed one package of 'hot smoked sausages', and placed them down the back of his pants.
Authorities say Brown left the station with the sausages and attempted to get into the vehicle he rode in. When he looked back to see the cashier on the phone, he reportedly dropped the sausage pack, which somehow ended up under the vehicle.
Arriving officers reviewed the store's surveillance video which captured part of the incident.
Officers say they read Brown his Miranda rights and at that point he declined to discuss the incident.
Brown was booked in the Indian River County Jail and charged with petty theft. Retail value of the purloined sausage is $4.99. Bond was set at $500 and Brown has since been released.
