A western Pennsylvania woman has been charged with stealing cold cuts at the behest of a bar owner who allegedly paid her half price for the boosted meats and cheeses.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 44-year-old Mandy Sue Minnitte, of Darlington.

The Beaver County Times reports she's charged with stealing $43 worth of cold cuts from a supermarket in May for 72-year-old Antonio Celeste, owner of Celeste's Bar in Monaca. He was previously charged and has denied wrongdoing, though court records show he's scheduled to enter a special probation program for first-time offenders next month.

Police had Minnitte call Celeste the day she was caught shoplifting and had her deliver the cold cuts to him for $20, before he was arrested.

Police are mailing the newly filed charges to Minnitte.
