TTPD: Man arrested after stealing vape pens

    The Texarkana, Texas, Police Department arrested a man last week after he stole $3,100 worth of vape pens from a convenience store on Richmond Road.

    According to police, 17-year-old Lavanta Guest and two other young men entered the store last Tuesday and attempted to purchase cigarettes.  When the clerk declined to sell them tobacco products without ID, two of the men turned to leave.  Guest then allegedly grabbed the box of merchandise and ran out the door.  According to police, the other two men seemed surprised and stayed on the premises. 

    Surveillance from the store helped police identify Guest, who was arrested at a Wake Village address without incident. 

    Guest was booked into Bi-State Jail with bond set at $10,000.
