(LAKANA) – Authorities are searching for a man riding an electric scooter who they say stole items from a Tucson Walmart.

Deputies said the man put items in his basket and zipped out of the store, according to Tucson.com.

An employee tried to stop the man, but was pinned against the wall by the scooter.

The man is believed to be a repeat offender who is suspected of a theft earlier in the month at the same store.

Authorities said the man was riding a motorized scooter and carrying crutches.
