The manager of the Aldi's on Highway 153 said a repeat meat thief has been told to stay away from all units of the grocery chain.
He said a short and stocky, bald white male took $300 to $400 in meats from the store June 18.
The manager said the same man returned this week and headed straight for the meat department. He put some bacon in his box.
He was approached and told to give up the bacon and stay out of Aldi's.
He left in a red 2005 Kia Spectra driven by an older white male, who had also been along on the June 18 spree.
The vehicle was traced to a resident of Boynton Drive, police said.

Someone from the vehicle started firing at them, and they ducked for cover.
The Crown Vic was last seen going east on Camden Street. The couple said they had not seen it before. They said black males were inside.
Police found a bullet hole in the front window of the woman's vehicle and another in the side of the house. Three .22 shell casings were recovered from the roadway in front of the residence.

Adam Sullivan said it was 8-9 years ago and he parked in front of the old hotel across from the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
He said he went inside, leaving his convertible with the top down parked outside.
When he returned, his wallet had been removed from the glove compartment.
Mr. Sullivan said he has "misplaced" his wallet several times over the years.
Of the ancient theft, he told police he "thought about it and thought he should report the theft though he could not even remember what year it was."
