Shoplifting arrest leads to traffic offenses

COVINGTON — An Atlanta man’s troubles kept multiplying after he was detained by Walmart’s loss prevention officer Tuesday afternoon.

A Covington Police officer arrived to find the man being held outside the general merchandise door at the store on Industrial Boulevard. The loss prevention officer told the officer that the man had taken a pair of tennis shoes out of their packaging and wore them out of the store.

When asked for his identification, the man produced an expired driver’s license.

“After talking with (the suspect) he stated that he drove his sister’s car to Walmart. After checking the vehicle’s registration, I discovered that the vehicle had no valid insurance,” the CPD incident report states.

Naquan Leon Harley, 23, of 856-A Washington St., Atlanta, was arrested and charged with no proof of insurance, driving without a license, theft by shoplifting.

The vehicle, a 2007 Chevy Impala, was impounded and a hold was placed on it until proof of insurance could be shown.
