An Elizabethtown man was arrested this week after he allegedly attempted to take several hundred dollars worth of merchandise from a store.
Arrest citations say that Travis Cobble was attempting to walk out of Walmart with just under $650 worth of merchandise in his cart. When confronted by loss prevention, Cobble gave them the cart back. A responding EPD officer asked Cobble if he had anything illegal on him, to which Cobble replied he did, with the officer locating a needle in his pocket. A search of Cobble’s vehicle resulted in officers finding other items, such as rolling papers, a smoking pipe, as well as needle caps which officers say appeared to have residue to methamphetamines. Cobble was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia, as well as theft by unlawful taking over $500. He was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.
