A central Pennsylvania man has been charged for a second time with trying to steal a rack of ribs by shoving them down his pants.

Carlisle police told The Sentinel newspaper that 65-year-old Donald Noone tried to hide about $20 worth of ribs in his pants on Sunday. Police said he attempted to pull the same stunt on May 22 at a local supermarket and pleaded guilty to retail theft and public drunkenness.

Police said since this is the second alleged offense, the theft charge will be considered a second-degree misdemeanor.

There was not a listed telephone number for Donald Noone in Carlisle and he could not immediately be reached for comment.
