Dixie Inn Police arrested Christopher Lee Harvill, 34, of the 2400 block of Bobbie Street in Bossier City, for theft of goods.
Police Chief James Edwards says Officer Robert Alan Davis responded to the Buzz Buy convenience store at the Dixie Inn Travel Center Saturday.
“The manager advised him that a subject had taken a box of tampons, placed them under his shirt and left the store without paying for them,” Edwards said.
Harvill reportedly went into the restroom of the Huddle House restaurant to hide, Edwards said. With the assistance of store and restaurant employees, Harvill was apprehended.
The suspect was confronted, and the box of tampons (unused) were recovered. Edwards says Harvill admitted to taking the item and said they were for his girlfriend.
He was arrested for theft of goods and booked at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
The chief says Harvill has three prior theft charges, making this arrest a felony.
