Columbia County authorities recently arrested a Grovetown teen for shoplifting paint and marbles from the Evans Walmart.
On Thursday, the sheriff’s office charged Sean Nicholas Wasnich, 17, of the 1600 block of Sweet Meadow Lane, with misdemeanor shoplifting.
A loss prevention officer for the store at 4469 Washington Road told sheriff’s deputies that on May 16 someone concealed four cans of spray paint and three bags of marbles in a book bag then exited without paying. When she tried to stop him, the loss prevention officer said he ran into the parking lot, got into a green Ford truck and fled.
Surveillance video shows Wasnich with another male in the store about the time of the theft. Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said that 15-year-old also was charged with misdemeanor shoplifting, but not booked into the jail.
Wasnich already has posted an $1,100 bond and been released from the Columbia County Detention Center.
