LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A man has been arrested in the theft of nearly $44,000 worth of meat from J.B. Swift Co. in Louisville.

Media outlets report an arrest citation released Thursday says 54-year-old Previn Sanford is accused of stealing nine pallets of meat on April 23. Court records say a co-defendant, 52-year-old Michael Sheffield, was arrested April 29.

The men face felony charges of theft by unlawful taking or disposition of property worth more than $10,000.

Police said a surveillance video showed a moving truck backing up to the loading dock. The pallets were loaded into the back of the truck and driven away.

The citation said the owner of the slaughterhouse later found the meat at a grocery store.
