Owens was reportedly caught on surveillance footage allegedly grabbing two packs of rib-eye steaks — worth $56.36 — putting them in his pants and walking out of the store. A loss prevention officer who saw the alleged steak swipe apprehended Owens as he exited the store, according to the report.

The 61-year-old told investigators he figured if he got caught, he would just be removed from the store, not arrested, officials said.

SUV belonging to El Paso woman killed in massacre is stolen, vandalized

Soon after a man buried his longtime partner in a funeral attended by hundreds of strangers last week — in the wake of the massacre inside an El Paso, Texas, Walmart — it emerged that her SUV had been stolen and vandalized.

Antonio Basco, 61, of El Paso, made headlines when he invited the public to attend the funeral of Margie Reckard, 63, because they didn’t have nearby relatives.

Reckard was one of 22 people shot and killed inside the Walmart on Aug. 22. The killer said he targeted Mexicans and warned of a “Hispanic invasion” of Texas.

This past Friday morning, hundreds of people from all over the country – including from Dayton, Ohio, the site of a mass shooting shortly after the attack in El Paso – filled up the La Paz Faith Memorial & Spiritual Center. A line snaked around the church and on the blocks beyond. Hundreds of flower arrangements were also sent.

However, Vanessa Kondow revealed on Facebook that somebody had stolen and wrecked Reckard’s Ford Escape, perhaps as recently as Saturday night, the day after the funeral. Kondow said she and her husband, who both work at a towing company, towed the damaged vehicle to Basco’s home after it was found.

“WTF is wrong with people!? He just buried his wife yesterday and now this s—,” Kondow wrote. “He told my husband that whoever took it also stole a pressure washing machine from a small trailer he used to use for mobile car washing. Share the s— out of this post to find the m—— who would do this.”

Kondow did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment.

Angel Gomez with Operation Hope, which coordinated many of the funerals for the victims, confirmed to Fox News that Reckard’s Ford Escape had been stolen and trashed.

He said he spoke with Basco about the incident and expected to speak with him again about getting him a new car or repairing the existing vehicle. Casa Ford in El Paso confirmed to KVIA-TV that it would help to get Basco a replacement vehicle.

Some commenters on Kondow’s post offered to help Basco get a new car.

“Just so you all know. Mr. Basco does not want a new vehicle. The Ford Escape was his wife’s and he’s always wanted to keep it. He has a vehicle of his own. If anyone wants to help, he most likely just wants the Escape to be repaired so he has that memory of his wife, Margie,” Kondow posted.

Iowa driver leads authorities on chase, claims car she was driving was stolen: police

An Iowa woman allegedly fleeing a traffic stop called authorities to report her car had been stolen — but she had been driving it all along.

Rachel Thornburg, 20, was speeding Tuesday on a highway in Clinton, a city roughly 85 miles east of Cedar Rapids, officials said, and a deputy tried to stop her.

CAR THIEF NAMED HENRY FORD ARRESTED IN MICHIGAN, OFFICIALS SAY

The driver fled, went through a red light, and led police on a chase, the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

During that chase, the sheriff’s office received a call from Thornburg claiming she left her keys in her car, and that it had been stolen. The vehicle, she said, was a 1998 grey Buick Century — the same car the deputy was pursuing.

Thornburg allegedly drove into neighboring Scott County, where police tried and failed to use Stop Sticks — a device used to deflate tires. Iowa State Patrol, however, had better luck with the device, and was able to stop the pursuit less than an hour later.

Authorities took the driver into custody and identified her as the caller who reported her own car missing while leading police on a multi-county chase.

Thornburg was charged with eluding, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, and speeding.

Wanted Tennessee inmate was caught after being spotted rifling through strangers’ refrigerator

A Tennessee convict who sparked a five-day manhunt following his prison escape and alleged murder of a correctional administrator last week was captured after home surveillance video caught him rifling through a married couple’s refrigerator at their home, investigators and the pair said Sunday.

Curtis Watson surrendered without incident several hours after law enforcement received a tip about his whereabouts in the West Tennessee town of Henning. Hundreds of law enforcement personnel converged near a soybean field where they took a disheveled Watson wearing camouflage overalls into custody after a ground and air search, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch said at a Sunday news conference.

“The pressure they put on Watson while he was on the run was absolutely critical,” Rausch said.

CANADIAN KILLER FUGITIVES’ TRAIL OF CLUES: BILLOWING SMOKE, SARDINE CANS, SLEEPING BAG HELPED END MANHUNT

The field was located 10 miles from the West Tennessee State Penitentiary where Watson made his Aug. 7 escape.

Harvey Taylor said he and his wife Ann were asleep in their home around 3:30 a.m. when they were awakened by their outdoor security alarm. When they looked at the video system, they spotted a man going through their refrigerator.

They called police after recognizing Watson from news coverage surrounding his escape.

“Once he closed the left side of the refrigerator door, my wife could his face… she said, ‘That’s him, that’s him,’ Taylor said. Watson was captured around 11 a.m.

An intense search for the 44-year-old started after he escaped from prison during his daily lawn-mowing detail. He had been serving a 15-year sentence for aggravated kidnapping. He illegally confined his wife while using an aluminum baseball bat in July 2012, court documents showed. His sentence began in 2013 and was set to expire in 2025, officials said.

Around 11 a.m. on the morning of Watson’s escape, prison officials said they realized employee Debra Johnson was missing after she didn’t report to work.

Johnson, 64, was found dead soon afterward in her home on the prison grounds. Investigators said she was sexually assaulted and strangled to death. Correctional officers reported they saw Watson riding a golf cart at Johnson’s house the morning she died.

Johnson worked for the Tennessee Department of Corrections (TDOC) for 38 years in various roles that included correctional sergeant, deputy warden and warden. She was the first TDOC employee to be killed in 15 years, The Commercial Appeal in Memphis reported.

MANHUNT FOR ESCAPED TENNESSEE INMATE INTENSIFIES AS STATE ISSUES RARE BLUE ALERT

Following his arrest, Watson was taken to a hospital, officials said. He had mosquito bites and his feet were in bad shape, but had no serious injuries.

“He was obviously weathered from his time in the outside,” Rausch said.

Watson’s daughter, Harley Pole, thanked law enforcement in a statement issued shortly after her father was captured.

“The family of Curtis Watson would like to extend their deepest and most heartfelt sympathies to the family of Ms Debra Johnson,” Pole said.

Watson faced new charges of first-degree murder, aggravated sexual battery, aggravated burglary and escaping from prison. Prosecutors were set to determine whether they’d seek the death penalty, Lauderdale County District Attorney Mark Davidson said.

“I can assure you that our office will be resolved to see that he is put back where he can never escape again and harm anybody in our communities,” Davidson added.

An arraignment is expected later this week.

Naked Florida bicyclist stole underwear from sex shop, cops allege

A man in Florida was seen pedaling a bike in the nude before swiping underwear from a sex shop, police reported, saying the man was under arrest.

It all happened this past Thursday evening in Wilton Manors in Broward County, where police said they responded after getting reports from “concerned citizens” of a naked man riding down the street on a bicycle.

After those initial calls, the man then entered the sex shop where he donned underwear he took off the shelf and offered to pay for it with his bicycle, WTVJ reported, posting cellphone video of the arrest.

Hawaii man sentences himself to 5 years in prison for burglary

A man facing six months behind bars in a burglary case in Hawaii asked for — and received — a sentence that will keep him locked up for five years.

“I just want the five,” Kyle Neuberger, 34, told the astonished judge Thursday, according to the Garden Island newspaper.

Neuberger had pleaded guilty to breaking into a Wailua home March 2 in exchange for a six-month jail sentence.

His request for a longer sentence came after the owner of the house said the break-in had traumatized her and her granddaughter, according to the paper.

“We want to make sure he gets help,” the woman said according to the paper. “I don’t want to see him on the streets anymore. And that’s the end of the story.”

Neuberger apologized as he asked for “an open five.”

“I’m sorry for what I did,” he was quoted as saying by the newspaper. “I didn’t intend to stay in the residence. I was kind of out of my mind. I believe I deserve the five-year term.”

After delivering the sentence, Judge Randal Valenciano told Neuberger, “Good luck,” according to the Garden Island.
