HEBRON, Md. (AP) -- The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man deputies say went into a supermarket, poked holes in packages of meat and moved chicken from refrigerated cases so they would spoil.

Deputies tell The Daily Times of Salisbury ( that managers at the Hebron Food Rite contacted them about the alleged tampering and an investigation began last month.
