CUMMING, Ga. — A store employee watched a man shoplift while he carried a small child, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

On July 28, the loss prevention officer of Home Depot, 1000 Market Place Boulevard, told officers he saw a man alter the price tag from an item and exchange it with another to pay a lower price.

After the man paid the altered price for the item, he came back in and completed a refund for the item.

When the loss prevention officer confronted the man, he tried to use the child as a barrier while he ran across the parking lot toward Walmart. The man escaped with the child.
