MERIDIAN — Meridian police said 33-year-old Lance Warr walked in to a Fred Meyer in Meridian around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and stole a machete.

When Fred Meyer employees confronted Warr, he allegedly threatened them before running into a nearby TCBY on Locust Grove Road and Fairview Avenue.

Inside TCBY, police say Warr threatened workers and customers inside, telling them to get on the ground. He reportedly stole cash and wallets before running away.

Meridian Police said officers later caught up with Warr as he was jumping fences in a nearby neighborhood.

Police have recovered all of the stolen property.
