$560 butcher request at New Castle Giant Eagle ends in arrest

NESHANNOCK TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WYTV) – Three men were arrested and charged with theft after they tried to make off with a big order from the meat department at an area Giant Eagle.

According to police, Steven Tedrow of Ellwood City and Mark Quear of New Castle ordered $560 in specialty cut steak from the butcher at the Giant Eagle on Wilmington Road.
