A baby formula heist from two local Walmarts resulted in a man’s arrest earlier this month, police said.

On Sept. 4, Johnson City police were called to the Walmart at 2915 W. Market St. by loss prevention employees in response to a report that a man had taken around $1,000 in baby formula. Police retrieved the baby formula in the parking lot.

As police were talking with Walmart’s loss prevention employees, police received a call that a man who fit the same description fled on foot after he attempted to steal nearly $700 in baby formula from the Walmart at 3111 Browns Mill Rd.

Police found Aaron Garland, 19, 200 Colordao St., at a nearby business. Garland was taken to the Washington County Detention Center.

Garland appeared in General Sessions Court on Sept. 5 at 1:45 p.m. He was released from jail on Sept. 11.
