Catonsville man is charged in shoplifting at Ames store

A Catonsville man has been charged with theft after he allegedly shoplifted some $400 worth of merchandise from the Ames store in the 8100 block of Ritchie Highway.

Charles Arthur Streat, 24, of the 1200 block of Arunah Ave. was arrested Monday about 6 p.m., county police said, after he allegedly placed more than $400 worth of merchandise -- bedding and clothing in a shopping cart and left the store without paying.

Police said the suspect ran when a store security guard approached him. A police officer spotted the man running north on Ritchie Highway and followed him into a wooded area off Route 100 where he was apprehended.

Mr. Streat told the officer he was running because he became scared by the store security officer who was yelling at him.
