Shoplifter flees to coffee shop in Cumming


February 06, 2014
CUMMING, Ga. — A man was caught shoplifting, and ran to a Starbucks to try and blend in, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

On Jan. 30, officers were dispatched to Walmart, 1500 Market Place Boulevard, because a man was caught shoplifting a drug test.

As officers were driving to the scene, they were told the suspect possibly fled on foot and was in the Atlanta Bread Company.

A witness identified the suspect and said he was in the Starbucks next door.

Officers saw the man inside Starbucks about to leave with his coffee in hand.

Officers asked the man if he had just left Walmart, and he said he had just left from the hospital.

Officers said he looked nervous and was sweating profusely. They interviewed the man outside while other officers reviewed the video surveillance footage from Walmart.

Officers said he became agitated and would not remain seated after being asked. He was placed under investigative detention and was told he was only being detained for the investigation of the shoplifting.

Officers positively identified the man as the suspect from Walmart, and he was placed under arrest for misdemeanor shoplifting.

As he was being transported, officers said he spontaneously uttered that, "he was just scared and didn't want to go back to prison, and he was sorry." He also kept asking officers to cut him a break.
