BUTTE - A Butte man has been arrested after reportedly trying to steal merchandise at K-Mart then getting into a scuffle with employees.
Joseph Gray, 44, was arrested evening Saturday while allegedly trying to steal $300 worth of merchandise. Gray reportedly tried to throw a bag filled with merchandise over the gardening department fence then tried to climb the fence.
Employees saw him, fought him to the ground and held him down until law enforcement arrived.
Undersheriff George Skuletich says Gray was charged with robbery because he put up a fight with K- Mart employees.
