3218643Jan 10, (THAINDIAN NEWS) There are many excuses that thieves resort to in order to get rid of law and evade punishment. However, very few cases of false excuses are reported when someone stealing uses really bizarre excuses. In a recent incident, a man was arrested in South Carolina. He was caught stealing a large slab of meat. For his crime he has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. However, the cops were baffled when they heard of his defense argument. The man reportedly said that he was not actually stealing the meat. He said that he was giving massage to the meat and had no intention of stealing.

The man was later identified as Mark Zachary. It has been discovered that he was caught for at least 8 times for shop lifting earlier. The man tried to hide the steak beneath his coat. His movements and gestures aroused suspicion and he was caught shoplifting. At first he tried to escape and ran away from the place. However, his efforts to flee proved futile and an officer managed to nab him quickly. The steak that he was attempting to steal had a price of $80. The man turned out to be a resident of Orangeburg.

When he tried to hide the stolen goody under the coat he was wearing, it raise the suspicion of a store manager. The big bulk under the coat was rather unusual to look at. The cops were definitely not satisfied with the filmy excuse he gave. It was quite obvious that he was trying to steal the meat and leave the store. Therefore, the prosecutors said that judgment was justified.
