According to the Fort Oglethorpe Police Department:
Austin Ryan Taylor, 18, of Mohawk Street in Rossville, Ga., was arrested on Monday, Dec. 24, on one count of shoplifting, and has since been released from jail on bond.
The incident occurred at the Wal-Mart at 3040 Ga. 2 (Battlefield Parkway) just before 8 p.m.
Store employees told police that they witnessed Taylor take a movie while with two other offenders and leave the store with it.
The trio passed all points of sale and were confronted in the parking lot, at which time the movie was thrown out into the parking lot.
While Taylor stayed with the store’s loss prevention staff, the two other suspects fled the scene on foot, reports show.
Taylor cooperated with loss prevention and police in giving the names and descriptions of the other two offenders, and was then transported to Catoosa County jail without incident.
