Salisbury, N.C. (The Weekly Vice) - Ronald Broadway, a 45-year-old North Carolina man was jailed Thursday after he allegedly shoplifted hundreds worth of food by shoving them down his pants.
According to police, employees at a Food Lion supermarket watched as Broadway entered the store and placed almost $300 worth of food items down his pants.
Investigators say Broadway wore sweatpants under his jeans and then placed duct tape around his ankles to keep the food from dropping out.

As Broadway walked from the store to his car, an officer on duty saw food dropping from the fly of his pants. The rest of the food items were found during a pat-down search.
In all, police recovered eight bags of shrimp, eight rib-eye steaks, a package of smoked turkey, a rack of ribs and a container of fuel cleaner hidden in Broadway's pants.
Broadway told police that the items were intended for his 45th birthday party.
Broadway was booked into the Rowan County Jail and charged with shoptlifting. He remains in jail in lieu of a $3,000 bond.
