PUYALLUP, Wash. — Puyallup police said a burglar went shopping inside a closed Walmart before he was found by security guards.
Officers said the 64-year-old man was able to enter the store at 310 31st Avenue Southeast after it was closed last weekend.
Once inside, the man chose a mountain bike and rode around the store selecting a few drinks and candy bars.
When security guards discovered the man, he told them to get away and threatened them with a cleaver-style knife.
The suspect then went out through a fire exit, taking the merchandise with him.
He was found behind the store and was detained by Puyallup police officers.
Officers said the man had a Pierce County Sheriff’s Department felony warrant for second-degree burglary.
He was permanently banned from Walmart and booked into the Pierce County Jail.
