An employee at a department store on the 2600 block of Taylor Road Southwest called police at 4:45 p.m. Sept. 4 to report a man had fled the store on foot without paying for an 1,800-watt power generator valued at $449. He left through an emergency door near the bakery, on the east side of the building, where employees told police they witnessed him trying to load the generator into a dark gray Ford Taurus.

According to reports, the driver "took off and traveled westbound on Taylor Road while the male was still trying to get the generator inside the vehicle."
