Thief stealing $600 in meat from West Rogers Park restaurant caught on video

October 24, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The video shows the thief in an alley outside JK Kabob House last month. First he tries to load 384 pounds of marinated beef, lamb and chicken onto his bike. But that doesn't work very well, so he leaves and returns with a shopping cart.

"When I came in we went down in the basement and all my meat's gone . . .Went next door, said 'Hey, can we see the video? And that's when we saw Mr. Meat Thief," said Majid Mustafa, JK Kabob House.

Mustafa says he's tightened up security at the restaurant since the theft.
