MUSKOGEE, Okla. – An Oklahoma man was arrested after allegedly stealing from a local restaurant.

But he wasn’t trying to take cash;  authorities say he was looking for food.

Officers were called to the Smoke Shack in Muskogee after an alleged thief took off with slabs of meat, a chainsaw and at least one pork butt totaling almost $900.

Less than a week later, officers with the Muskogee Police Department say they were called back to the Smoke Shack after they learned the alleged suspect may be inside the restaurant.

They arrived and took the brisket bandit into custody.

Ricky Milligan is facing charges of second-degree burglary and possession of stolen property.
