Steak thief imprisoned four years
August 16, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Andrew Brown

A former convict who shoved multiple steaks into his overalls at a Daly City grocery story and threatened officers with a box cutter was sentenced yesterday to four years in prison.

Andrew Thomas Brown, 63, was convicted in June of two counts each of felony armed robbery and felony assault with a deadly weapon, commercial burglary and theft. On Thursday, he was sentenced to four years incarceration with credit of 160 days. He must also pay $200 restitution to Safeway for the purloined meat.

Brown stole the beef March 30 from the store in the Westlake Shopping Center. Loss prevention officers reported seeing Brown shove multiple packages of steaks into his overalls before walking out of the store. When two officers approached and asked him to return to the store, Brown reportedly admitted the stealing and pulled the meat from his pants. When the officers reiterated he must return to the store, Brown pulled out a box cutter and waved it at them before running away.

Daly City police were called and chased Brown down after nearly a mile.
