A customer helped LaPorte City Police arrest a suspected shoplifter

yesterday.

About 4 p.m......police say a man was seen taking a 24 inch television

from Wal Mart.

A customer began following the suspect....but lost sight of the

fleeing vehicle at Monroe and Franklin streets.

Soon....responding officers located the man and pulled him over on

Michigan Ave.

Police say 40 year old Joseph Childers was tasered three times because he

would stop kicking and eventually was placed in leg restraints.

Video from Wal Mart shows him allegedly taking the TV and an ID card with his name on it

was found not far from where the TV was taken.
