FILE -- police car

A La Crosse man was cited for shoplifting after police found a pork tenderloin in his pants.

Police were called to the People’s Food Co-op on Friday afternoon after an employee saw 52-year-old David Tischer slip the $13.55 cut of meat into his trousers along with two sandwiches.

When questioned, Tischer removed the items and said he stole them because he was broke, homeless and hungry.

He was cited for retail theft and warned to stay away from the store.

The Coop called the Police for $25. What about them?


homes, compassion and Clownservative are for all practical purposes, mutually exclusive terms.
