SWEETWATER-The search for a shoplifter at Save-A-Lot on Main Street Tuesday afternoon caused a bit of a stir.

The call was first paged out to Sweetwater Police as a robbery, but it was soon determined to be a shoplifting case, according to SPD Capt. Gary Newman.

The suspect, Jonathan Slack, 23, Sweetwater, ran behind Seiler Block Co. and police continued the search near where Slack lived. The suspect had allegedly tried to grab a woman's person as he ran out the store's door with about $14 worth of food items, but the woman pulled it away.

Slack was captured and charged with the theft of various food items.
