The arriving officer arrested Raymond A. Nielson, 36, of Anderson without further incident.

Authorities learned that Nielson tried to steal alcohol from the store and was confronted by an employee, said APD.

He then ran and left the store, which then made an employee give chase in an attempt to detain the suspect.
