A warrant has been issued for a Meijer employee accused of fleeing the Perkins Township store with expensive gaming equipment.

Bryan R. Combs, 25, of 2367 Wells Road, Collins, is charged with theft through Sandusky Municipal Court. The first-degree misdemeanor is in connection with an incident Thursday investigated by Perkins Township Police Officer Angela Blake.

A Meijer security officer contacted police at 7 p.m. after she reportedly caught Combs leaving the store through an employee exit with a bag containing about $400 worth of electronics, police said. In the bag allegedly were a wireless PlayStation 3 headset, an Xbox 360 wireless controller, a "Frozen" DVD and three PS 3 games.

The security officer stopped Combs before he could leave and he reportedly admitted to the attempted theft, according to Blake's report. Before police arrived, the suspect had left the Meijer property in his vehicle.

Judge Erich O'Brien issued a warrant for Combs' arrest Friday.
