Salem police said they were called to the Walmart store about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on a report of two shoplifters fleeing the store with four cases of beer, two cases of diapers and a case of baby formula, the New Hampshire Union Leader in Manchester reported Wednesday.
Investigators said the men had called a cab to pick them up at the store, but the driver, sensing something was up, refused to give them a ride.
Officers chased Shaun Klier, 29, of Lawrence, Mass., to the parking lot of a nearby gas station and John Murphy, 46, of Lawrence, was arrested in the parking lot of a nearby fitness center.
Klier was charged with theft and a probation violation. Murphy, who allegedly lied to officers about his name, was charged with theft, false reports to law enforcement and resisting arrest.
