From Local Sources
JASPER — Police called Thursday to the report of a suspected shoplifter eventually took a man into custody, accusing him of theft and resisting arrest.
The Jasper Police Department received a report of a male shoplifter identified by asset protection staff at Walmart Supercenter at 5:55 p.m.
While en route, police were told the suspect had exited the 4040 Newton St. store and was getting into a car.
Police speaking with the suspect, John W. Mosley II, 38, Vincennes, said he began to make multiple furtive movements toward his pocket and the crack of the vehicle seat.
Mosley continued to reach toward his pocket when asked to exit the vehicle and refused when police told him to place his hands behind his back, police said.
When it appeared Mosley might attempt to flee, he was taken down by law enforcement, but still continued to resist.
Police allege Mosley had taken two phone cases, two packages of shoe strings, a bottle of Gorilla glue and a bottle of hair dye with a total value of $31.91.
Authorities booked Mosley into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:32 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of theft and resisting arrest.
