ODESSA - A man got into hot water with Odessa Police after he was caught stealing meat from a local store.

Officers were called out to the El Rancho Supermarket on East 8th Street.

A security guard told police a man had stolen nearly $60 of meat and walked out.

He says when he confronted the suspect, he shoved the security guard and ran off.

The suspect was identified as 26-year-old Robert Gonzalez.

He was found at a nearby Albertson's and admitted to stealing the meat but not to pushing the security guard.

However, video surveillance showed he did in fact push the guard.

He was arrested for robbery.

Police also later found out he had 10 warrants out for his arrest.
