LANCASTER – A local photographer happened across this scene around 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning in the Stater Bros. parking lot at 1850 East Avenue J in Lancaster.
The alleged shoplifter apparently tried to make a break for it but was caught in the parking lot and pinned to the ground by store security*. The accused thief was eventually arrested for shoplifting when deputies arrived on scene, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Michael Rust. No further information was immediately available Thursday afternoon.
