WAL-MART BOSS NABS SUSPECT IN STORE SHOPLIFTING

The manager of Wal-Mart, 8701 U.S. 19, stopped a customer leaving the store about 9 a.m. Sunday, convinced that the man had stolen from the store, a Port Richey police report said.

A police officer arrived and lifted Allan Scott McCray's shirt. He found three pairs of socks and a pork fillet tucked inside the 25-year-old's leather belt, the report said.

McCray of Spring Hill was arrested on charges of retail theft, resisting a merchant and, after authorities said he kicked the window of the officer's patrol car, criminal mischief.

His response to the charges: "Prove it."

He was held at the Land O'Lakes jail Monday in lieu of $1,500 bail.

Autopsy fails to find cause of man's death

Pasco deputies were investigating the death of a 19-year-old Rhode Island man after an autopsy failed to determine a cause of death.

Scott Theroux was lying in bed at his mother's mobile home, 17654 Nicks Drive, when his mother tried to wake him about 7:45 a.m. Saturday, a Pasco sheriff's report said. But Theroux wouldn't move, the report said.

His mother called 911.

Within 20 minutes, emergency responders pronounced Theroux dead.

Witnesses told deputies that about a week ago, Theroux, of 25 Hazard St., Pawtucket, R.I., was involved in a fight in Hernando County.

But the autopsy ruled that Theroux's death was not caused by injuries from a fight.

"The death investigation is ongoing, pending toxicology reports from the medical examiner," said Doug Tobin, a spokesman for the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

"It appears that foul play was not suspected in the preliminary investigation," Tobin said.

Theroux's relatives declined to comment Monday.
