He was being pursued by store workers, who when they saw the Deputy's patrol car, yelled the man had just stolen from the store.
The Deputy was able to quickly capture the suspect and his contraband. The BCSO says besides the charges of theft for this incident, the man was also wanted on an unrelated warrant out of Franklin County.
