Suspect flees twice after shoplift attempt



JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — The Whole Foods on State Bridge Road reported Nov. 22 that a man sped off after attempting to shoplift $630 worth of goods.

The store manager told police the suspect had left the store with a cart full of unpaid goods and went toward his car, which was parked in a handicap spot.

Employees approached the man and asked if he had paid for the items. He replied “no” and said that he went outside to get a bigger cart.

The suspect then abandoned the cart and began to drive away, despite employees and other witnesses trying to stop him.

Soon after, the suspect came back to the store to complain about a cart being pushed into his car. An employee told him they were calling the police, and the suspect once again ran out.

Once he reached his car, the suspect began to bend his license plate to attempt to conceal it, according to witnesses. He drove off again.

The man was described as white, in his mid-30s and approximately 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes, witnesses said.
