Police arrest man who tried to steal ammo from Academy Sports

    Texarkana, Texas, police arrested 48-year-old Craig Smith last Friday when he attempted to steal a backpack full of ammunition from Academy Sports.

    An employee initially followed Smith as he left Academy until an officer arrived.  Smith was found in the parking lot with the backpack heading for a vehicle. 

    The officer alleges that Smith initially resisted arrest before being handcuffed.  A search of the backpack turned up several boxes of ammunition as well as a multi-tool and pre-packaged meals which also had markings from Academy. 

    It was discovered that Smith also had two felony probation violation warrant for previous theft and credit card abuse convictions. 

    Smith is being held in Bi-State Jail on a $18,000 bond, not including the probation violations.
