Woodland police say that a suspected shoplifter was arrested after store security tried to stop his vehicle in a grocery parking lot.
Police said the suspected thief took an item from the Nugget Market, 157 Main St., about 4 p.m. Wednesday. When he began to flee in his vehicle, police said, loss prevention employees reached into and held onto his vehicle in an attempt to stop him and retain the merchandise.
The thief fled as the store employees moved away from the vehicle.
At about 7:30 p.m., Woodland police spotted the getaway vehicle on East Beamer Street west of County Road 102. Officers stopped the vehicle and took Corey Olsen, 35, of Woodland into custody.
He was booked on suspicion of robbery.
