LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Police arrested a Lufkin man early Thursday after a CVS employee reported he was smoking marijuana in the store.

According to the report, the clerk said Develle Trey Smith, 25, was also "taking people's money" in the Frank Street location.

The report states when police encountered him, around 1:18 a.m., Smith ignored the officer's orders to stop. The officer then had to grab Smith and when he tried to handcuff him, Smith resisted, so the officer used pepper spray to subdue him, the report stated.

The clerk told the officer that Smith stole a Sprite, two packages of cheese crackers, and Blue Bell ice cream, totally $5.16.

Smith was arrested and charged with the misdemeanor offenses of public intoxication, theft and resisting arrest.
