The Oklahoma City Police Department said in a Facebook post the man was confronted by an employee at the Smart Saver store after he was seen hiding six packages of bacon -- totaling about $30 worth -- inside his shirt.

The man refused to return the pilfered pork and left the store in a hurry, police said.

"Hey, I like bacon as much as the next guy, but you can't just go around stealing it," police said in the Facebook post.

The post included a CCTV photo of the suspect.
