A local grocery store may have a beef with a hitchhiker who piked a roast.

On Oct. 21 at 1:14 p.m., Sicamous RCMP received a report of a theft from a local grocery store. Later in the day, a stolen car was reported. Both incidents, says Sgt. Dave Dubnyk, relate to a man who picked up a hitchhiker while en route to Calgary.

The couple stopped at a Sicamous grocery store. The hitchhiker entered the store and later ran out in an attempt to steal a roast.  On the run, the hitchhiker dropped the meat, and wound up stealing the vehicle he’d been picked up in.

The vehicle was later found undamaged in Salmon Arm. The thief’s identity remains unknown, and police continue to investigate the incident.
