ORANGE PARK – A grab-and-go shoplifter was quickly arrested and charged with grand theft, using an anti-shoplifting device, criminal mischief and providing a false identity to law enforcement, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.


According to the arrest report, a loss prevention officer at the Orange Park Mall saw Kenneth Shuman, 39, of Callahan, “grabbed several high dollar items and depart the store.” The officer told deputies she saw Shuman stuff the items in a black garbage bag and walk toward Wells Road. He was quickly arrested in the Home Depot parking lot.


Shuman told deputies he met somebody on Facebook who wanted to buy the stolen items. He said he needed money to rent a hotel room in Jacksonville.


The officer said she had surveillance video of Shuman taking items, and she found anti-theft lock cables that he removed with wire cutters.


The cost of the items – perfumes and purses – reported as stolen was $1,786.80, and the value of the damaged cables was $81.


His bond was set at $30,010.
