what happens to someone's food shopping when they are arrested?

supposing someone has spent half their weeks wage on food, they commit a crime after leaving the supermarket and are taken to the local jail, do they store the food in the prison for the prisoner so they can eat it while in custody?

    It sit in the prisoners personal effects and rots or sits in the evidence locker and is given back as personal property when they get out.

    No, prisons don't allow prisoners to bring their own food.

    Prisoners are given a phone call - one in the beginning - to call someone to advise that person that they are under arrest and make arrangements for their belongings, and that includes their vehicle and their groceries.

    You can arrange for someone to collect your possessions. Unless the groceries are evidence in the case, law enforcement won't do anything with them. In  NO case will they be allowed in jail/prison.

    Note: If they are arrested AFTER paying, they are not arrested WHILE shopping.

    Nope.. Their car gets towed.  The food rots in the heat of the boot of the car.  The person cannot pay his or her bills while sitting in custody either.  The person cannot feed his or her dog.  The person cannot pick up his or her child at school. They do not care if he or she loses his or her whole life.

    No.  The food will sit in the convict’s cupboards/refrigerator until s/he is released, or until someone (friend or family member) throws it out.

    Hell no.  Your own mother can die while incarcerated; and you are not permitted to get out to see her laid to rest.  So why would they care about some groceries you just bought.?

    No, they do not do that.

    lol no.  They also don't take care of your pets, pay your bills, or do anything else that would make your life easier.
