Shopper Accused of Switching Tags on Pricey Meat at Port Chester Store

Police: Man tried to get duck for the price of chicken.

A Pennsylvania man shopping for duck at a Port Chester store tried to get the pricey meat for the cost of chicken, Port Chester Police say.

Garvin Hercules, 39, of Tamiment, PA, is accused of petty larceny in connection with a price-switching scheme on Thursday at Restaurant Depot, 305 S. Regent St. Police said Hercules is accused of taking a price tag from a package of chicken meat and putting it on a 38-pound package of duck.

The real price of the duck is $94.60, but the switch put the price at $10.40 when Hercules brought the meat to the checkout counter, police said. Store personnel filed a complaint against Hercules.

Hercules faces a hearing in Port Chester Village Court.
