A shoplifter didn't get far when he tried to steal from a Rapid City hardware store.
Ace Hardware employees noticed Keith Ericson push a cart of merchandise out of the store without paying. They tried to stop him as he loaded the items into the back of a truck being driven by his wife. She started to drive away as Keith jumped in the bed of the truck, but he fell out before they got out of the parking lot. When Dianna Ericson got out of the truck to help him, a witness grabbed the keys so that the couple couldn't drive away.
Police say Keith is also a suspect in the theft of four drills from Walmart. He's charged with theft and possession of drug paraphernalia. Dianna is charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license.
