A pair of pantyhose was used in an alleged meat caper at the Rockwood IGA last month.
Annie Smith, 60, is charged with theft in the incident. Her 46-year-old alleged accomplice, Randy Harris, is charged with theft and evading arrest.
Harris assisted Smith in hiding $206.89 worth of filet mignon in her pantyhose, Rockwood police allege in a report on the incident. The theft was captured by the store’s security video, according to the report.
Harris is accused of fleeing when police showed up. The report said he was captured two blocks away after a brief foot pursuit.
Smith’s address was listed as 289 Royce Circle, Apt. 207, Oak Ridge. Harris’ address was listed as 204 Wilberforce Ave., Oak Ridge. Both are scheduled to appear in Roane County General Sessions Court on April 15.
