Mary Esther, FL (AP) - A Florida Panhandle teen faces charges
after authorities say he used tools at a department store to fix
his bike without paying for them.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office reports that the
15-year-old boy walked his bike into the Sears at the Santa Rosa
Mall on Sunday. He then went to the tool department, removed tools
from their packaging and worked on his bike in the store.
The Northwest Florida Daily News (http://bit.ly/nIFjCA ) reports
that the teen left the store for a short time after an employee
told him he couldn't work on his bike there. But surveillance video
showed that the boy returned to finish his repairs.
The teen was later caught by a deputy in a nearby parking lot.
He was charged with larceny, trespassing and resisting officers
