Two men were arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with shoplifting more than $100 worth of movie videos from the Kmart in Pasadena, county police said.
Mark Webster, a security officer at the store in the 8000 block of Jumpers Hole Road, told police that he watched through a surveillance camera as one man took videotapes and the other acted as a lookout.
Both men attempted to leave the store shortly before 12:30 p.m., but Mr. Webster caught the one who was acting as a lookout. The other drove away in a silver Dodge Shadow with Florida tags.
The man who was caught told an officer that he had only gone for a ride with his friend to visit a relative. Another officer found the car parked behind a business across the street from the Kmart.
The Kmart security officer identified the man as the one who had escaped with the videos. Police found the tapes, worth $169, in the car's trunk.
Police charged Ricky Allen McMillion, 29, of the 1600 block of Cereal St. in Baltimore and Mitchell Wayne Krippner, 22, of the 100 block of S. Meadow Drive in Glen Burnie with theft.
Mr. McMillion was being held yesterday in the county jail on $2,500 bail, and Mr. Krippner was released Tuesday on his own recognizance.
