Employees at a Fairbanks power tool store chased down a man who had stolen a bandsaw kit from their store.
By the time employees caught up with the man, he was already on his bicycle fleeing the scene. Employees chased him down and while attempting to recover the merchandise, the suspect grabbed a holstered firearm from his backpack and tried removing the gun from the holster, according to the report by the Alaska Department of Public Safety.
One of the store employees was conceal-carrying his own firearm, drew it, and pointed it at the suspect.
“The suspect considered his decision, then put the firearm in his backpack and ran away on foot. Investigation on-going,” the Troopers reported. The suspect has not yet been arrested.
