PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. — Police in Peachtree City, Georgia got an assist from a citizen this week in dealing with a shoplifter — and it was all caught on camera.
Authorities were tracking a shoplifter on Jan. 18, and soon began to pursue on foot. A customer outside the Walmart in Peachtree City saw what was happening — and used his shopping cart to slow down the suspect just enough for authorities to get their man.
Part of the Facebook post caption reads as follows:
“While we are eternally grateful for this citizen’s quick thinking and impeccable timing, we never encourage anybody to intervene in a police situation.”
