A 50-year-old Columbus man was arrested Thursday afternoon on a charge of theft by shoplifting.
Michael Lockhart is accused of taking $15.60 worth of meat from the Publix at 3201 Macon Road, according to a Columbus police report.
Lockhart pleaded guilty Friday morning in Recorder's Court.
"I apologize, and I will not be back in again," he told Judge Michael Cielinski.
Cielinski set his bond at $2,500 and bound his case over to Superior Court.
