While Officer Walsh was on patrol in the parking lot of 4400 N. State Road 7; he observed a male, exiting a store location. Once the subject observed Officer Walsh's marked unit he turned and walked the opposite direction in attempt to elude him. Officer Walsh believed the subject matched the description of a subject who committed an armed robbery a day prior at a different store. Officer Walsh received information from dispatch that the store was calling-in an in-progress shoplifting. Both this subject and a second subject that was still inside the store were subsequently taken into custody. The investigation revealed that the store suffered losses totaling over $1,000.00. Due to Officer Walsh's keen observation skills he was able to foil an attempt to commit a grand theft.
