jmcfadden@heraldonline.comDecember 19, 2013 

— A Rock Hill woman on Wednesday accused her neighbor of breaking into her house and stealing $75 worth of frozen meat from her freezer, including pork chops, chicken legs and ground beef, police say.

Police at about 10:20 p.m. were sent to a Blanche Circle home after receiving calls about a house burglary. When they arrived, they met with the homeowner, 59, who told officers that when she returned home from work, she noticed that her bedroom window was open, according to a Rock Hill police report.

She also realized that several packaged meat products had been taken from her freezer. Among the meat stolen was a pack of pork chops, a turkey, ground beef, three packages of chicken legs and four turkey necks, the report states. The woman told police she believed her neighbor broke into her house and took the frozen food.

Police spoke with the neighbor, a 48-year-old man, who denied the accusations and claimed that the homeowner is “always accusing him of taking things from her.” Police dusted the house for fingerprints, but could not detect any. Authorities are still investigating.
