A man was arrested and booked for felony shoplifting, claiming he was merely testing store security in an attempt to drum up business.

Employees of Scheel's Sporting Goods at Village Pointe called police on Saturday to report a shoplifter. According to the report, a customer told a store employee a man was putting baseball bats down the legs of his trousers.

When confronted, the suspect asked to see the store manager and claimed he was starting a security consulting business and wanted to tell the manager he had concealed several items without being detected.

Twenty-six-year-old Trevor Herweyer was arrested and booked for felony shoplifting. Three Easton Stealth bats worth $900 were returned to the store.
