The food, along with other merchandise stolen in exchange for drugs, can also be fenced. Clark said digestion takes care of the rest.

“How do you dispute someone who’s holding a T-bone?” he said. “Once they grill that steak up and eat it, the evidence is gone.”

“It’s sad that you’ve got to stoop that low to go in the grocery and steal a steak that’s only $5,” said Diane Applin of Springfield. “But (drug addicts) are really smart people. They just sit all day and dream of ways to steal for money.”

    Except for marijuana junkies — they always get caught because their overcoats are filled with crunchy Doritos.
