A Greenwich man was arrested Sunday after admitting to stealing a steak from Whole Foods on East Putnam Avenue. Richard Steward Jeffrey, 55, of 104 Round Hill Road, had concealed the steak in his jacket and driven away in his BMW. Police stopped the car, and Jeffrey told police he "did something stupid and was not thinking." He handed over the steak, valued at $34.55, to police and was arrested on a charge of sixth-degree larceny. He was released on a $250 bond and was due in court Dec. 20. Jeffrey was also told he would be arrested if he returned to Whole Foods.
