Police arrested a 40-year-old man Monday evening at his home after they say he stole a home security system from the Radio Shack at 4848 S. Broadway.
According to authorities, the man attempted to pay with a credit card. After the card was declined multiple times, the man shoved the clerk, grabbed the bag with the security system and fled in a truck. Police tracked down the man, through his truck’s license plate, at his home in the 1600 block of East Alta, near Hydraulic and MacArthur Road, where he was arrested.
Authorities also arrested two others in the same house who had outstanding warrants. They were not related to the robbery.
