A man threatened to cut employees with a knife at Wal-Mart on Harrison Road earlier this week after he attempted to shoplift tools, according to Bibb County Sheriffs Office reports.
Hours later, he shoplifted the same items from the Wal-Mart on Zebulon Road.
An employee at the Harrison Road location told deputies the suspect was 6 feet tall, black and weighed about 250 pounds. A report said the man was wearing bedroom shoes and a baseball cap when he attempted to leave the store with a backpack full of tools and a knife he did not pay for.
After employees asked the man to come back inside, he responded, If you put your hands on me, I cut all of you, according to the report. An employee told officers the man was swinging a razor knife at them so they backed off.
About three hours later, the man was reportedly seen taking the same tools from the Wal-Mart on Zebulon Road, in a separate sheriffs report. A witness told deputies he saw three black men leave the store with tools they did not pay for before they fled in a white SUV, according to the report.
The cases are still under investigation.
