Fort McCoy man behind bars after being caught outside grocery store with stolen meats - 05-15


A Fort McCoy man found himself behind bars Sunday morning after an off-duty Marion County sheriff’s lieutenant saw him allegedly stealing items from an Ocala grocery store. Ocala Police officers responded to the Publix at 303 SE 17th St. and when they arrived, the sheriff’s lieutenant said he saw 58-year-old Ronald Rex Reddick grabbing multiple packs of meats and concealing them in his backpack and pockets. The lieutenant said he followed Reddick past the cash registers and outside the store, where he confronted him, an Ocala Police report says.
