During Easter Sunday in Temple, Texas, it was very eventful if you were an employee or a customer at the H-E-B in Temple.

By now, just about everyone in the world has seen the video of a lady flinging meat into her trunk at the H-E-B on S. 31st because it was all caught on video. Then another video emerged showing what appeared to be the same car parked at a local home.


Two suspects reportedly stole $2000 worth of meat out of the grocery store. I’m not exactly sure what they needed that much meat for, but what I can say is I know this very stupid and careless act was not worth a possible felony.

The two suspects have been shown on so many social media websites that there’s no way that they’re going to remain hidden. They are practically famous at this point. I literally have driven past the house of the alleged thieves where the Chrysler 300 was parked just by accident.


When you watch the video of the young lady putting the meat in the back of the trunk of the car, she is wearing a mask which of course makes it a little difficult for authorities to identify her.  It now seems that the Temple Police Department has issued a warrant for 40-year-old Marchea Latonya Brooks and 53-year-old Latonya Thomas.

The Temple Police Department is asking anybody who knows the whereabouts of these two women to please contact them at 254-289-5500 or the Bell County Crime Stoppers at 254-526-8477. Callers to Crime Stoppers can report anonymously, and you can also submit at tip at bellcountycrimestoppers.com or using the free P3Tips app. A tip leading to an arrest could net you a cash reward of up to $1,000..

I’m not exactly sure what may have possessed these two young ladies to steal $2000 worth of groceries out of H-E-B, but what I can say is now they have a real beef with Temple Police Department!
