BUFORD, Ga -- Police should always be so lucky. A Buford man was arrested for shoplifting after he called 911 himself.
Alfonso Aguilar, 42, of Buford was spotted by loss prevention officers at the Walmart on Buford Drive Monday night. They followed him out of the store after watching him steal several items.
When the employees identified themselves as loss prevention Aguilar pulled out a knife and
swung it widely
and ran, according to a Gwinnett County Police incident report.
So he actually produces a knife in the course of this trying to resist these two guys who he claims later are trying to abduct him or assault him," Cpl. Jake Smith said.
