LIBERTY, Ohio (WKBN) – Police arrested a man on a couple of felony warrants during a shoplifting investigation at Walmart in Liberty.
Investigators were called there last Wednesday afternoon for a report that a man put two televisions and a PlayStation into a shopping cart and tried to push it out the door without paying.
A Walmart employee told police that the suspect, identified in a police report as 21-year-old Jayshawn Sutton, was stopped by a greeter, who asked him for his receipt. The employee said Sutton instead gave the greeter a receipt from McDonald’s and then shoved past security, leaving the cart behind.
Police stopped Sutton behind Taco Bell and said he was found with a new iPhone, which was still in the box.
Police said he was also found to have warrants for his arrest on a parole violation, felony receiving stolen property charge in Mahoning County and felony possession of dangerous drugs charge in Portage County.
He also faces a theft charge for the incident.
