Three arrested for embezzling meat products

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) – Three men have been arrested and charged after police say they stole thousands of dollars worth of meat products from a Henrico warehouse.

According to police, the men were employees of Performance Food Group. Over the course of several weeks, the men allegedly stole the food items on several occasions, and hid them on a truck, driven by one of the men.

The thefts were discovered after shipping and transfer orders were reviewed and surveillance video supposedly caught the men in the act.

30-year-old Dominick Atkins, 33-year-old George E. Staten, Jr. and 34-year-old Maurice D. Taylor were arrested Friday. All three face charges of embezzlement and conspiracy to commit embezzlement.
