Curtis Greer got a pre-Christmas trip to jail after being charged with theft last week.
On Dec. 23, LaFollette Police Officers Robert Foxx and Odell Bailey were dispatched to Big Creek Market to investigate reports of a shoplifting incident.
A store employee described the offender as a black male with a shaved head. The man identified as Greer, of 508 Rose Hill, allegedly fled south on foot on Tennessee Ave.
A short time later Foxx found Greer walking on Rose Hill. A warrants check revealed Greer had two bench warrants.
