AUBURN, Calif. (AP) - Police in have arrested a Northern California man for stealing hundreds of pounds of meat that had been donated for the needy to the Salvation Army.

Police in Auburn 30 miles northeast of Sacramento said 41-year-old Jeff Holzman was booked Thursday into Placer County Jail on suspicion of burglary, being a felon in possession of a loaded gun and violating his parole.

The Sacramento Bee reports police learned that between Friday and Tuesday, two people somehow got into the Salvation Army's freezer and took more than 300 pounds of packaged meat.

They photographed the meat and returned it to the Salvation Army.
