Report: Man used motorized wheelchair to shoplift
Monday, June 4, 2012

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Deputies arrested a Charleston man who was caught using his motorized wheelchair to shoplift.

According to a Lexington County Sheriff’s Department incident report, officers responded to a shoplifter in custody call at the Food Lion located at 535 Saint Andrews Road on May 27.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with the store manager who stated that 47-year-old Daniel Sanders entered the store on a motorized wheelchair and attempted to steal items by placing them on the floorboard of his wheelchair, the report stated.

The manger told officers Sanders was detained by store employees when he tried to exit the business, according to sheriff’s deputies.

Deputies say when they questioned Sanders he admitted to the crime.

Officers then spoke with another staff member who stated that Sanders purposely ran over the back of his leg with the wheel chair, the report stated.

Sanders denied the claim, but officers spoke with three other witnesses who said Sanders intentionally ran over the workers leg, according to sheriff’s deputies.

Deputies ran a check on Sanders through dispatch and they were informed that he had two warrants for his arrest, one out of Charleston Police Department and another from North Charleston, the report stated.

Sanders was arrested on charges of shoplifting and third-degree assault and battery.
