Florida man stuffs chainsaw down his pants in shoplifting case

A Florida man was caught on tape shoving a chainsaw down his shorts in a bizarre shoplifting incident late last month in a lawn equipment store in Port St. Lucie. Surveillance video recently released by Port St. Lucie police shows Anthony Ballard, 27, grabbing the chainsaw, stuffing it down his pants behind a shelf and leaving the store.

As employees chased after Ballard, he ditched the chainsaw in a wooded lot. Then, he made his big mistake: he returned to pick up the chainsaw. Guess who was waiting for him when he went back to the scene? Police was immediately arrested and booked on a grand theft charge.
