The Ocala Police Department said employees at Martin Oil in Ocala told officers Dwayne Thomas, 33, a regular customer, had grabbed money out of the cash register Tuesday and fled the store after writing his name down on a job application.
Thomas was located a few blocks from the store, and allegedly resisted the officer who attempted to arrest him and fled on foot before being subdued. The missing cash was found in his pocket, police said.
Thomas was charged with burglary, petty theft retail and resisting with violence.
