It seems as if we have heard about some crazy stories of shoplifting. The fact that people think they can get away with certain items, or just the sheer quantity of items, is amazing.
Large grocery stores are used to dealing with shoplifters, but many times it's usually people who try and steal an item or two. It's certainly not every day you hear about someone trying to steal $800 worth of items, but that's apparently what happened earlier this month at the Wegmans in West Seneca.
According to the West Seneca Police Department's blotter report from the week of January 16-22, they responded to report from a Wegmans employee that an unknown male suspect shoplifted $800 worth of meats and crab legs on Tuesday, January 18th.
Yes, $800 worth of meats and crab legs.
The suspect fled the store in a vehicle, but the West Seneca Police Department were able to track down that vehicle's owner.
This is where it gets even weirder.
The owner of the vehicle says he loaned his car to a man, known only to him as "Captain Jack"...
The investigation is continuing on the whereabouts of "Captain Jack" based off the description.
I'm not sure why you would ever loan your vehicle to a man named "Captain Jack." The fact he stole $800 worth of meats and crab legs is surreal in and of itself, but going by that name makes it so much more bizarre.
Hopefully, Captain Jack is caught and held responsible.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate
, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean
With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme
to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
