sneak

Hi,

I am not sure what the sentence means. Please help me.

They caught him trying to sneak food into the theater.

What did he do?

(1) He stole food (from somewhere) and then brought it into the theater.
(2) He brought his food into the theater without gaining permission.
(3) ?

Thanks!

Justin

Usually #2. It would usually mean that food is not allowed in the theatre, but he tried to smuggle some in.
