A 49-year-old Bryan woman was in jail Thursday on a felony charge of stealing about $24 worth of meat from a Bryan grocery store.
Police said they were called to Village Foods on Briarcrest Drive Wednesday after a store manager saw a woman putting packages of meat in her purse.
Charlette Parks paid for some items but not the meat in her purse, according to the police report. She is accused of stealing a package of ham, two packages of sausage and five packages of Spam lunch meat, valued at $23.91, the report states.
Because of two prior theft convictions, the charge was upgraded to a state jail felony, which is punishable by up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
Parks remained in the Brazos County Jail on Thursday in lieu of $5,000 bail.
