A store employee told police the man grabbed several packages of batteries from a display case near the register and then ran out of the store without paying for them.
The employee told officers he ran outside after the man and demanded he stop. The employee said the man stopped and then turned around and pulled up his shirt in an apparent attempt to show a weapon. The employee told police the man reached for the weapon, but it had fallen down his pants, and he had to bend over and reach down to his ankle and pull it from beneath his pant leg.
