Man destroys would-be thief with shopping cart in Walmart parking lot

A vigilante shopper stopped a thief in his tracks by rolling his cart directly into the robber as he ran through a Walmart parking lot in Georgia, a report said.

The good Samaritan can be seen on surveillance video obtained by FOX 5 Atlanta as he launches his shopping cart straight into the path of the shoplifter, causing the man the tumble to the ground.

“He was able to help us take him into custody without injury to anyone including the offender,” Sgt. Chris Hyatt of Peachtree City Police told the outlet.

Others in the parking lot then helped the shopper put the items back into his cart after the daring capture.

The suspect, 41-year-old Marcus Smith, was charged with felony shoplifting and obstruction.

Peachtree police warned citizens about taking criminal matters into their own hands.

“Don’t do anything that you aren’t comfortable with or that would put you or others in harm’s way,” Hyatt said.
