You may just have solved something that was niggling me.
In a couple of local pubs, there are regular “fences” who often have steaks from supermarkets (Tesco and Waitrose) on offer. I had assumed they got shoplifters to obtain these, but wondered how they managed to do this on a regular basis… So it could be they get their contacts to damage goods in the way you describe, and then pick up later… I’m glad I never bought one of those steaks. 🙂
