Lufkin Police say a man took measures to ensure his arrest on an outstanding warrant, gathering another charge in the process.

According to the police report, Terry Tyrone Jones, 48, walked into a store on the 600 block of North Raguet Street at 2:29 p.m. Tuesday and told the clerk that he was stealing a bag of chips and a grape soda to ensure police would respond to arrest him on a felony warrant. He then walked outside and drank a Nehi grape soda, valued at 99 cents, and ate a bag of pork rinds, valued at $1.29, and waited for police to arrive.

Police arrived and arrested Jones on a charge of misdemeanor theft and an outstanding warrant on a motion to adjudicate guilt on a delivery of a controlled substance conviction.

According to the report, Jones told officers he had a revocation warrant and did not think that officers would respond for that only so he shoplifted the items to make sure they responded. The officer detained Jones for the theft charge while he confirmed that Angelina County held an outstanding revocation warrant.

"Wanted person need not commit additional crimes to address their warrants," police spokesman Det. J.B. Smith said. "They need only to contact the agency holding the warrant and make arrangements to surrender."
