Grawn Man Arrested On Multiple Charges At GT Mall

By Beth Milligan | April 14, 2018

A 26-year-old Grawn man is facing multiple charges after he attempted to shoplift from Walmart and then fled to the Grand Traverse Mall, where he was apprehended by deputies.

Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office deputies responded to Walmart at 1:20pm Thursday in response to a reported retail fraud. A loss prevention officer told dispatchers a man had attempted to steal several items and left the store on foot. When the loss prevention officer confronted the man, the subject stated "I'm not going to jail," dropped the items, and ran toward a nearby Chili's restaurant. 

 

A description of the subject was given to responding deputies. The subject was soon after seen running towards the front door of Target at the Grand Traverse Mall. Deputies entered the mall and immediately located the subject, taking him into custody.

After the man was arrested, 1-2 grams of suspected marijuana was found in his possession. The suspect was lodged at Grand Traverse County Jail for third-degree retail fraud, marijuana possession, and six outstanding misdemeanor warrants. The man told authorities he uses multiple illegal drugs and shoplifts to purchase the illegal drugs.
