Salem OR Dec 14 2010 Authorities stopped a 47-year-old man twice Sunday on accusations he dashed with DVDs from a pair of Salem stores, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Brian L. Jackman of Salem was first cited at a Goodwill store, 3535 Lancaster Dr. N.E., about 1:45pm., after store security stopped him headed out the door with $47 in unpaid-for DVDs, CDs and used computer parts, said Don Thomson, a sheriff’s spokesman.
Jackman returned the items, was cited for third-degree theft and released. Deputies allowed him to hang on to an X-acto knife found on his person.
Shortly after 3 p.m., authorities were called to a Safeway store, 3380 Lancaster Dr. N.E., on reports that a man had dashed with a handful of DVDs then took a swipe at a security guard with an X-acto knife.
Store security told investigators they had spotted a man taking $20 worth of DVDs into the store’s bathroom then leaving without paying. Guards followed the man outside, then confronted him. During the ensuing scuffle, the man pulled out an X-acto knife and attempted to stab a guard in the leg.
The guard received a minor cut and refused treatment
Deputies responded and arrested Jackman. He was taken to the Marion County Jail on counts of first-degree robbery, third-degree theft, menacing, assault and unlawful use of a weapon.
