ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A Columbus man was arrested April 4 after allegedly stealing goods and then returning to the scene for more loot.
Employees of the Sam’s Club on Windward Parkway said they saw Lawrence Xavier Spencer, 22, of Columbus, enter the store and pick up a set of Bose speakers. He allegedly removed the speakers from their box and hid them in his pants. He then left the store.
Spencer then returned two hours later, allegedly in an attempt to steal more items. This time, he was chased from the store by employees. Police caught him outside.
A pawn ticket on him showed that Spencer had pawned the stolen speakers in Atlanta.
Spencer was arrested for shoplifting.
