Shoplifter in Cumming stuffs riflescope in pants


May 30, 2014
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A man was caught shoplifting a riflescope from a store, but he said he was trying to "test it," according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

On May 15, the assistant manager of Walmart, 5455 Atlanta Highway, told deputies the man came into the store and took the $170 Nikon riflescope and brought it to the clothing department.

Then, he took the scope out of the package and stuffed it into his pants. He walked out of the store through the garden department and headed to his car.

The assistant manager confronted the suspect and the suspect dropped the scope and fled on foot.

The assistant manager said he chased the suspect through the parking lot and saw him get into a gold Honda Accord.

Deputies later spoke to the suspect on the phone about the incident.

He told deputies he took the scope out of the package and into the parking lot, so he could test it. He said he got angry and left when the assistant manager confronted him.

Behzad Mehran, 49, was later charged with shoplifting, a misdemeanor, and taken to Forsyth County Detention Center.
