Serial shoplifter arrested two times in one week after pulling gun on Target LP officer then hits another Target store Saturday  A South Carolina man wanted for pulling a gun on a Target employee last week after getting caught shoplifting was arrested Saturday while attempting to steal more merchandise from another Target store. At the store, a loss prevention officer confronted Waldrop, but rather than confessing, Waldrop pulled a silver handgun on the officer instead. He eventually eluded authorities when he drove off in a cream-colored car, Greenville County Deputy Drew Pinciaro said. However, less than a week later, police received a call at a different Target store in Anderson, about 40 miles away from the first store. Apparently the store’s employees had recognized Waldrop from surveillance photos posted across various Target stores. Waldrop was arrested and now faces charges for armed robbery and possession of a gun during the commission of a violent crime, both of which are felonies. (Source
